It will be a Catch 22 situation if both Leander Paes and his partner Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza and her Croatian partner Ivan Dodig reach finals. But to do that both the teams that have now reached semi-finals should beat their opponents and move ahead swiftly.
Leander Paes reaching semi finals is yet another step towards completing a career slam in mixed doubles. The unseeded Paes Hingis duo who already are the winners of Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open in 2015, scored 6-4, 6-3 to beat the fifth seed Elena Vesnina of Russia and Bruno Soares of Brazil to reach the semis. They will have to beat the sixth seeds Andrea Hlavackova and Edouard Roger-Vasselin to enter the finals.
The second seeds Sania-Ivan will be playing the third seeds Kristina Mladenovic and Pierre-Hugues Herbert duringthe semi final.
