Women Doubles Finals Hingis / Mirza vs Hlavackova / Hradecka 2016 Australian Open Jan 29, 2016. The unseeded duo of American CoCo Vandeweghe and Romania’s Horia Tecau punched their ticket to the final with a 6-4, 6-4 triumph over Andreja Klepac and Treat Huey.
Hingis was once the No. 1 ranked women’s singles player in the world, winning five career Grand Slam titles, including three Aussie Open crowns.
She has since gone on to become a dominant doubles player, winning 12 Grand Slam championships in that realm. Provided she and Mirza keep up the level of play that has led them on a 36-match winning streak, they have a golden opportunity to complete the non-calendar Grand Slam at the French Open in a few months.
They will have their work cut out for them when it comes to winning a title, though, as they will take on No. 5 Elena Vesnina and Bruno Soares, who defeated the top-seeded pairing of Mirza and Ivan Dodig 7-5, 7-6(4).
While there is a great deal of intrigue surrounding the doubles scene, the main storyline coming out of Day 12 is the impending clash between Murray and Djokovic in the men’s singles final.
Djoker is the unquestioned top player in the world, and Murray has certainly had trouble against him over the years, including at the Aussie Open, with three losses to him in the finals
