Sania Mirza, who is making waves through her singles performances, has launched her doubles campaign on a winning note as well, advancing to the pre-quarter finals of the $600,000 East West Bank Classic women’s tennis tournament here.

Sania and her American partner Bethanie Mattek beat the Slovakian-Dutch pair of Janette Husarova and Michaella Krajicek 6-3, 2-6, 11-9 in the first round of the WTA Tier II hard court tournament yesterday.

The Indo-US duo next faces the second seeded pair of Czech Kveta Peschke and Australian Rennae Stubbs.
