The fourth seed Indo-Russian pair recorded a 3-6 6-4 7-5 win over the unseeded Spanish pair in the quarter-final. Reaching the quarterfinals with American partner Bathanie Mattek in 2008 was her best performance till today's match.

The Roland Garros finalists faced stiff resistance from the giant killing Spanish combo but they quickly got back into the rhythm to prevail in a hard-fought battle. Sania and Vesnina will next face the winner of the other quarter-final match between the Chinese pair of Shuai Peng and Jie Zheng and Czech Republic's Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia.
