Sania Mirza, Andreja Klepac advance into semi-finals of Qatar Total Open 2021
Sania Mirza continued her good form as she along with her partner Andreja Klepac of Slovenia progressed to the semi-finals of the Qatar Total Open on Wednesday. Sania and her women’s doubles partner Klepac registered a comfortable 6-2, 6-0 win in straight sets over fourth-seeded Anna Blinkova and Gabriela Dabrowski in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Earlier on Monday, Sania made a winning return to the WTA circuit as she along with Klepac defeated Ukranian’s pair of Nadiia Kichenok and Lyudmyla Kichenok 6-4 6-7(5) 10-5 in the opening round of the showpiece event.
This match was Sania’s first in 12 months’ time and co-incidentally, this Qatar Open was the last tournament she played in 2020 when all competitions were put to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
