The first set was won by Saina Mirza and Martina 6-3. In the first set Krajeck and Strycova tried to break the service but Saina Mirza and Martina Hignis proved too strong for the opponent.


Krajeck and Strycova were more even erratic in the second set and conceded six break points three of which were converted by Saina and Martina Hignis. With 9 unforced errors Krajeck and Strycova literally served the match on a platter for Saina and Martina Hignis who wrapped the second set in 26 minutes to enter into the quarter finals.
