Sania Mirza has had a very busy Wimbledon schedule this season as she has not lost a single game in the competition this year. Be it her women's doubles matches partnering Martina Hingis or her partnership with Brazilian Bruno Soares in mixed doubles, she has been in prime form.
After defeating Yaroslava Shvedova and Casey Dellacqua on Wednesday in women's doubles, Sania Mirza will once again be seen in action on Thursday for the mixed doubles quarter-final.
Sania and Soares will face Alexander Peya and Timea Babos, who are seeded fourth in the mixed doubles competition. Babos and Peya have been decent in their performances so far and will be eager to topple the second seeds.
Babos and Peya defeated Oliver Marach and Olga Savchuk in their third round encounter to meet Sania and Soares in the quarter-final.
Sania and Soares have come after a win over the Croatian pair of Marin Draganja and Ana Konjuh in a tough three setter in the third round. The Indo-Brazilian pair will want to improve upon its performance and score a straight set victory over Babos and Peya.
Apart from Sania Mirza, Leander Paes will also be in action in the mixed doubles arena alsongside Martina Hingis. The Indo-Swiss pair of Paes and Hingis brings the entertainment factor to the forefront with some exquisite tennis.
Paes and Hingis are a joy to watch, which was evident in the first grand slam of the year, Australian Open 2015, where they turned victorious. They have been showing the same form this Wimbledon as well, so it won't be a surprise if the seventh seeded pair go all the way and clinch the title.
But they will have their focus on Thursday's clash with Marcin Matkowski and Elina Vesnina, who are the third seeds of the competition. Hence, the game between the two pairings might produce an entertaining match and with Leander Paes on show, excitement (with his quick reflexes) is assured.
