Sania-Shvedova win Citi Open doubles titleAugust 1st, 2011 - 6:44 pm ICT by IANS
College Park (Maryland, US), Aug 1 (IANS) Top seeds Sania Mirza of India and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan clinched the Citi Open women’s doubles title, defeating second seeds Olga Govortsova of Belarus and Alla Kudryavtseva of Russia 6-3, 6-3.
It was Sania’s third doubles title this year and 12th overall. It took Sania and Shvedova 65 minutes to close the match.
Sania teamed up with Shvedova after her regular partner Elena Vesnina decided to take the week off.
“It feels great to win my first tournament this year. I hope there will be lots coming,” Shvedova said. “Sania asked me to play this week because Elena took the week off. So did Vani (Vania King), so neither of us had our usual partners… We had fun playing together. It worked out well this week!”
Partnering American Vania King, Shvedova lifted both the 2010 Wimbledon Women’s Doubles and 2010 US Open Women’s Doubles titles.
Sania is now headed to San Diego where she will be partnering Vesnina.
“Won the tournament:) en-route to San diego… one of the prettiest places in the world, can’t wait to see my aunt who lives there:),” Sania tweeted.
