Toronto, Aug 14 (IANS) Reigning Wimbledon champions Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis notched up an easy win to enter the women’s doubles quarterfinals of the $2,678,055 Canadian Open tennis tournament here.

The top seeded pair took just 54 minutes to defeat German-Polish combine of Julia Goerges and Klaudia Jans-Ignacik 6-3, 6-2 on the outdoor hard courts of the Aviva Centre on Thursday.
