Sania Mirza to play with Barbora Strycova in the US Open:

Despite winning it, Niculescu and Sania Mirza made it clear that they are only going to be partnered just for a short time and they will get back with their regular teammates for the US Open. Sania, the now World Number 1 says that she’s going to play Barbora Strycova in the US Open. While Monica Niculescu said that she’s going to play with Vania King and both of them wished that it should not be last time they play together. Regarding how they teamed up, it’s Niculescu who asked Sania to team with her back in Cincinnati, and she said yes without any delay. They won the tournament and their games just complement each other and suit each other. They have the rhythm about each other. Let’s see if Sania is going to win the US open, too!
