Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza through to semis in Aegon International at Eastbourne

Eastbourne: Top-seeds Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis entered the semi-finals of the WTA Aegon International after coming from a set down to prevail over Hao-Ching Chan and Flavia Pennetta.

The Indo-Swiss duo got the better of the unseeded combo of Taipei's Chan and Pennetta from Italy 4-6 6-3 10-6 in an-hour-and 13-minute quarter-final contest of the USD 731000 grass court tournament, the last before the Wimbledon.

Sania and Hingis converted five out of the six breakpoints they got in the match, while their opponents could win just five out of 12 breakpoints.

In the semi-finals, the top seeded pair will take on Caroline Garcia and Katarina Srebotnik.
