Sania and Zimbabwe's comeback mom Cara, who are on a eight-match winning streak, having won in Tokyo last week, are quite the talk of the Tour with their attacking brand of tennis.

The 26-year-old Hyderabadi, who played with American Bethanie Mattek Sands for most of the season, before the duo had to part ways because of the American's injury issues, and Cara, who played with Aussie Anastasia Rodionova at the start of the year before trying her fortunes with Kiwi Marina Erkovic, came together two weeks ago and haven't put a foot wrong since.

In the final late on Saturday, Sania and Cara will play the winner of the late-night clash between Russian Vera Dushevina and Spain's Arantxa Parra Santonja and Taipei's Su-Wei Hsieh and China's Shuai Peng.
