Sania Mirza and her Italian partner Mara Santangelo advanced to the doubles pre-quarterfinals of the USD two million Dubai Tennis Championships after getting a walkover from Poland’s Urszula Radwanska and Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland in the first round in Dubai Open.

An injury to Radwanska forced the Polish-American pair to give away the match to their opponents.

Sania and Sanatangelo now have a tough job at hand as they face top seeded pair of Zimbabwean Cara Black and American Lizel Huber in the second round.

Sania’s singles campaign had ended yesterday after losing her second round match to Kaia Kanepi of Estonia.
