Martina Hingis and Sa­nia Mirza

added the Aus­tralian Open ti­tle on Fri­day to their 2015 US Open and Wim­ble­don crowns as the pair main­tained their dom­i­nance of women’s dou­bles

They beat the Czech pair of

An­drea Hlavack­ova and Lu­cie Hradecka 7-6 (1), 6-3 to ex­tend their win­ning streak to 36. In an in­cred­i­ble feat, Sa­nia and Martina have now won eight ti­tles in a row. P23

“Thank you to my part­ner,

we’ve had an in­cred­i­ble year... She’s an amaz­ing cham­pion, but I’ve got­ten to know her as a per­son and it’s a priv­i­lege to play with her.”

SA­NIA MIRZA

“I feel lonely with­out my

part­ner. Our fairy­tale con­tin­ues. It’s amaz­ing since win­ning Wim­ble­don. Af­ter that we only lost two more matches. It keeps go­ing.”
