Sania Mirza notched up her third title of the season and 17th overall, as she lifted the women’s doubles trophy at the WTA New Haven Open along with new partner Jie Zheng.

Sania and Jie defeated Anabel Medina Garrigues and Katarina Srebotnik 6-3, 6-4 in the summit clash.

Mirza and Zheng fell behind an early break but quickly got back and from 3-3 in the first set, they won six of the next seven games to capture the first set and take control of the second.

They did have a bit of trouble closing it out, as at 5-2 in the second set, Medina and Srebotnik won two games in a row and then got to deuce on Sania’s serve before the Indo-Chinese duo finished off the triumph on their fifth match point.
