Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis
The ones to watch – they were unbeatable all throughout 2015, smashing their way through Wimbledon and the US Open to win two Grand Slam titles before ending the year with an untouchable 55-7 record.
Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic
Garcia and Mladenovic’s high-risk and aggressive playing styles strike fear into the hearts of their opponents. It’s no wonder that the formidable two were the first all-French women’s Doubles champions at this year’s Roland Garros in 45 years.
Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova
Sometimes, it takes a few tries to find the right groove. Vesnina and Makarova have teamed up briefly before, but they didn’t quite swing their way to success until the 2013 French Open.
Hao-Ching Chan and Yung-Jan Chan
There’s no stopping these sisters on court. With seven women’s Doubles titles to their names, the Chan siblings are the second most successful sister pairing in WTA history after Venus and Serena Williams.
Timea Babos and Yarsolava Shvedova
Although initially off to a wobbly start, the Hungarian-Kazakh girls have now found the right balance of synergy and quick reflexes that even sent ‘Santina’ out of Wimbledon 2016.
Andrea Hlaváčková and Lucie Hradecká
It doesn’t take a tennis expert to recognise the longstanding chemistry in the Hlavackova-Hradecka dream team. Six years down the road, and the all-Czech combination have captured a stunning 11 titles together.
Karolina Pliskova and Julia Goerges
This German-Czech duo recently made it as far as the semi-finals at Wimbledon, where they faced off against the Williams sisters. Here’s hoping the WTA Finals sees them climbing the leaderboard.
Saisai Zheng and Yi-Fan Xu
All that sweat and hard work have recently paid off for these two sporting stars. While Zheng hit her highest WTA Doubles ranking at number 19 this April, Xu achieved number 16 shortly after in July.
