The Indo-Swiss pairing has seven WTA doubles titles together this year -- Indian Wells, Miami, Charleston, Wimbledon, the US Open, Guangzhou and Wuhan.

Wuhan: Ace Indian tennis star Sania Mirza continued her superb run with Swiss partner Martina Hingis as the duo clinched its seventh title together by winning the Wuhan Open women's doubles trophy here today.

The top-seeded pair eased past the Romanian team of Irina-Camelia Begu and Monica Niculescu 6-2, 6-3 in the title clash.

"Title number 7 #SanTina @mhingis #WuhanOpen," the Indian star tweeted accompanied by a picture of the duo with the trophy.
