Former World No.1 Sania Mirza continued her dream comeback to the WTA circuit when on Friday she entered the women’s doubles final at the ongoing Hobart International. Mirza, back from a two-year absence from the tour after having her baby, paired with Ukraine`s Nadia Kichenok to win their semi-final clash over Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic and Slovenia`s Tamara Zidansek, 7-6(3), 6-2, and move into the summit clash.

Mirza and Kichenok beat Bouzkova and Zidansek in a match that lasted one hour and 24 minutes. The Indo-Ukranian pair had 15 break points in the match and were able to convert just four of them, but they were only broken twice in the match, to garner the straight-set victory. Mirza and Kichenok will now face the second-seeded Chinese pair of Zhang Shuai and Peng Shuai on Saturday.
