Sania and Hingis have not had a great month which assumes importance with the Olympics looming a week ahead. The defending champions crashed out in the quarter-finals of the Wimbledon losing to Timea Babos-Yaroslava Shvedova and would be looking to go into the quadrennial event on a high with a win at the Rogers Cup.
The pair made a good start to their hopes with an emphatic win over Brit Naomi Brady and USA's Shelby Rogers in just under 44 minutes in the second round. Although they were not at their best committing 4 double faults, SanTina proved to be the better on the day.
The pair will face the American duo of Christina Mchale and Asia Muhammad in the quarterfinal today.
