Martina Hingis and Leander Paes in action

Martina Hingis  and Leander Paes continued her winning run at the 2016 Australian Open, defeating the pair of  Sloane Stephens and Jean-Julien Rojer in straight sets 6-1 6-2 in the 2nd round on Tuesday.

The opening set saw the Indo-Swiss pair sail through proceedings, winninng 89% of the points on their first serve and 67% on their second serve and converting all 3 break point opportunities that came their way to eventually seal the set 6-1.

The second set was no different as the pair seemed in no mood to relent, as they won 67% of their first serve points  and 44% of their second serve points and despite serving more number of unforced errors in the second set (4) to 1 of their opponents, romped home to a 6-2 set win and thereby book their place in the quarterfinals of the competition.

It would be an interesting matchup at that stage of the competition, as Paes and Hingis will play Sania Mirza and Ivan Dodig and that certainly promises to be a highly intriguing clash.

Final Scoreline- Martina Hingis/Leander Paes beat Sloane Stephens/Jean-Julien Rojer 6-1 6-2
