Sania Mirza won her third WTA doubles title of the season, and 12th overall, when she and Yaroslava Shvedova pipped Olga Govortsova of Belarus and Alla Kudryavtseva of Russia in the final of the Citi Open at College Park on Sunday.
Defending their top billing, the Indo-Kazakh pair overcame the second seeds 6-3, 6-3 after an hour and five minutes' struggle.
Sania paired with Yaroslava for this tournament since her regular Tour partner, Elena Vesnina, skipped the event.
She had triumphed at Indian Wells and Charleston with Vesnina and lost in the final of the French Open.
Sania and Yaroslova provided umpteen opportunities to their opponents but prevented any damage by saving eight break chances in the second set.
The winners shared US $11,000 and earned 280 ranking points each.
