64 62 was the scoreline. This year Brisbane has been promoted to a $1m premier event. This week two more WTA events are being held, one in Shenzhen($500K) which is a new tournament and the other one in Auckland($235K). And also Hopman cup going on, so many tournaments in one week.

In the second set Huber and Jose Martinez Sanchez broke Sania's serve in 3rd game to lead 2-1 but after that Sania and Bethanie won five games from next six games ... In that they broke Huber and Jose Martinez Sanchez's serve twice for win in 62 minutes ... In the semis they r facing experienced pair of Hantuchova and Srebotnik.

Thats a good start to the year. Has she decided to play Bethanie this year or is this a one tournament pairing?

Sania is still ranked as high as #12 in doubles -- and 278 in singles. The 320 points she has already earned in Brisbane are a great start to the year in doubles. I hope she plays some singles soon too.

Bethanie is ranked 35 in doubles (169 in singles), so her ranking may be an impediment to getting seeded at the AO -- although this week's points should boost her ranking.

she has said before singles only if she can maintain her fitness level. Look at it from her side. Doubles is helping her earn a decent career. Why take risk of singles which is strenous and has high risk of injuries?
