'Unreal feeling winning three Slams in a row'

Following her Australian Open triumph, Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza on Sunday said it was an unreal feeling to win three Grand Slam titles in a row and she would try to maintain the winning streak with her swiss partner Martina Hingis.

“It’s an unreal feeling. We haven’t lost a match in a long time but also to win three Grand Slams in a row…it’s what really dreams are made of and I am really excited. It was a perfect way to start the year.

“We feel really happy. Three Slams in a row who would have thought. I am taking a couple of days off before going to Fed Cup in Thailand,” said Sania after her arrival here.

Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis were on Friday last crowned the Australian Open women’s doubles champions after they tamed the spirited Czech duo of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in straight sets for their 36th win in a row. It was their third consecutive Grand Slam title for Sania and Martina, having won the Wimbledon and US Open in 2015.

In an incredible feat, Sania and Martina have now extended their unbeaten run to 36 matches, winning eight titles in a row. They won five straight titles in 2015, starting from the US Open and before the Australian Open now.

“Nothing is certain. We still have to go out there and give our best and try and play the best that we can,” said reacting to a question regarding her future with Hingis. “Fortunately we have been able to do this for so many months and the whole year has been incredible. But the last six months especially. So we are going to keep trying to do that. I think we all know, in sports everyone loses and at some point we are going to lose.”
