Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza release official statement on partnership split

After three Grand Slam victories and eleven WTA doubles titles together, we have mutually agreed that we would each be open to playing with other players for the remainder of the season.  

Perhaps, because of our great past results, we have had very high expectations from our partnership and unfortunately did not get the results we desired recently. We would like to clarify that it was a totally professional decision based purely on our recent results.

The professional decision has not and will not in any way affect the wonderful personal relationship that we continue to share.  We also look forward to defending our title in the year-end WTA Finals in Singapore in October for which Santina has already qualified.  We hope that this puts to rest some of the fabricated stories that have been doing the rounds in some sections of the media.
