MIAMI: Sania Mirza and her partner Barbora Strycova fought off a strong challenge from Martina Hingis and Chan Yung-Jan to reach the women's double final at the Miami Open tennis tournament.

Sania and Barbora lost the opening set of their semi-final clash here on Friday evening before staging a superb comeback to script a 6-7, 6-1, 10-4 against their fifth-seeded opponents.

The third seeded Indo-Czech pair will face the unseeded Canadian-Chinese team of Gabriela Dabrowski and Xu Yifan in the battle for the title.

Sania, who had bagged the women's doubles title alongside American star Bethanie Mattek-Sands at the Brisbane Open in January, will be eyeing her second title of the year.

This will also be her second final with Barbora this year. The duo had reached the final of the Sydney International earlier this year where they lost to the Timea Babos of Hungary and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia.
