Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza will partner Chinese Taipei’s Su-wei Hsieh in the new season after ending a fruitful partnership with Zimbabwean Cara Black that saw her clinch the WTA Finals in the women’s doubles. Interestingly, the Sania-Cara combine had defeated the pair of Su-Wei and Peng Shuai of China in the summit clash of the WTA Finals. She will though continue her association with Bruno Soares of Brazil with whom she won the US Open mixed doubles title. “I played with Cara for little over a year and we shared a great partnership. We had a lot of fun on the tour and enjoyed each other’s company and made a very good team. Unfortunately we had to split as she made a decision and I have to respect that. But I wish her all the best for a fabulous career ahead. I will play with Su-wei next year. She was No. 1 in the world in women’s doubles once and has slipped to No. 5. But she is a lovely girl, a good player and I am partnering her next season,” Sania said.
