Martina Hingis (EZONE Ai 100, PTGP125, SHT-PROLX) claimed her first crown since she came back to play in WTA doubles tournaments last summer. Together with another YONEX player, Sabine Lisicki(VCORE Tour 97, PTGSPN), Martina overcame the second seeded Russian pair Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. Despite being a set behind, they ended the game at 4-6 6-4 10-5 at the Sony Open Tennis final on Sunday.
Although it was Martina and Sabine’s second time playing in a doubles tournament together, the YONEX pair boasted powerful performances, defeating No.6 seeds Andrea Hlavackova / Lucie Safarova and No.5 seeds Cara Black / Sania Mirza on their way to the final.
Now Martina has 38 WTA doubles titles to her name, and Sabine captured her third since winning at Stuttgart in 2011 and 2013.
