Doubles joy for Ana

Ana is through to the quarter-finals of the Nasdaq-100 Open women’s doubles competition. She teamed up with Sania Mirza to beat Czech Kveta Peschke and Italian Francesca Schiavone 6-1, 6-3.

Taking to the court just over an hour after she had played her fourth round singles match (click here for report), Ana and her Indian partner were always in control of the tie. Ana held all of her five service games.

The teenagers triumphed in just 58 minutes to set up a last eight meeting with either Shinobu Asagoe and Katarina Srebotnik or Kim Clijsters and Caroline Maes.
