The Indo-Swiss duo of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis reached the final of Wuhan Open tennis tournament and is eyeing their seventh title together.

The top seeds brushed aside the challenge of No.4 seeded Chinese Taipean duo of Hao-Ching Chan and Yung-Jan Chan 6-2, 6-1 in just 53 minutes.

They won 53 of the 88 total points and converted five of the 10 break points received in a lop-sided affair to set up a title clash with the unseeded Romanian pair of Irina-Camelia Begu and Monica Niculescu.

Camelia Begu-Niculescu defeated Czech Republic's Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 1-6, 10-8.

The Indo-Swiss pair earlier defeated fifth seeded American pair of Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears 6-2, 6-2 in the last eight stage.
