Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis, who began their partnership in March 2015, have ended their 16-month partnership due to a string of recent poor results.
Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis’ partnership took the tennis world by storm in 2015 when they won nine titles, including three Grand Slam titles. Their duo, labeled ‘Santina’ were on top of the world and it seemed many titles would come their way. However, on Monday, it was announced that the duo were separating due to recent poor results.
While sources close to Sania confirmed the split in an interview to PTI, Hingis has taken to her official Instagram account (@martinahingis80) to explain the reasons behind their split

Sania-Martina started their partnership with a bang by winning three titles on the trot — at Indian Wells, Miami and Charleston in 2015.
Sania became world number one in partnership with Martina when they won the Charleston event. Sania also enjoyed her first ever women’s doubles Grand Slam title by winning the Wimbledon in company of Martina. Later, the pair also won the 2015 US Open.
After winning four titles at the start of the season, they have managed to win only one (Rome) after that in three finals.
They also failed to defend their Wimbledon crown. Last month’s Montreal event happened to be their last tournament together, where they lost in the quarterfinals. In all they won 14 titles.
