Congrats Sania and Martina for another title ... Also Martina is projected to join Sania as co-World No.1 on the WTA Doubles Rankings ... This will be Martina's first time at No.1 since the Indian Wells in 2000.

After losing the first set easily Sania and Martina were 2-5 down in the second set ... After that they made amazing comeback for winning this match.

At $$753K Apia International Sydney, Australia (WTA Premier)

[F] (1) Sania Mirza (IND)/ Martina Hingis (SUI) bt (3) Caroline Garcia (FRA)/ Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) 16 75 10-5

"It was definitely a great test, and against a great new team," Hingis said afterwards. "They were playing together for the first time this week, and I think we're going to see a lot more of them.

"We had to take our chances. You don't see much light in a dark tunnel, but then we had one or two opportunities here and there, and with one little chance we were able to turn the match around."

"At 6-1, 5-2 the only thing we could say to each other was that it was only one break," Mirza added. "That's the only positive you can find from a situation like that. We tried to hold our serve for 5-3 to give ourselves another chance, then we had a huge game at 5-3 and the momentum went in our favor.

"We're really happy to win another tournament. We're really happy with the way we fought."

"I think it's another chapter in my career, definitely," Hingis said. "When Sania became No.1 in Charleston that was a huge stepping stone for her, and now for me, 16 years later, who would have thought I would have another opportunity to become No.1 again? It was a dream and now it's reality.

"But I've felt we're the No.1 team for a while now. It was just a question of time."

"Ditto!" Mirza added with a laugh.
