Sania Holds On To No. 1 Ranking
Indian tennis superstar Sania Mirza secured sole position as the number one in the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) doubles ranking after teaming up with Barbora Strycova to beat former partner Martina Hingis and Coco Vandeweghe. The Indo-Czech pair beat their opponents 7-5, 6-4 in the finals of the women's doubles event of the 2016 Cincinnati Masters.
Hingis and Mirza were playing their first tournament apart since officially confirming their split in July and the Indian tennis international moved alone to the top of the rankings after beating Hingis on 21 August.
