ZIMBABWE’S Cara Black is through to the finals of the WTA Toray Pan Pacific Open in Japan and on course to defend a title she won last year with India’s Sania Mirza.

Putting up yet another dominating performance, the defending champions outclassed Jelena Jankovic and Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-3, 6-2 to reach the summit clash of the tournament in Tokyo on Thursday.

The top-seeded Indo-Zimbabwean pair took only 63 minutes to overcome the unseeded Serbian-Spanish combo in the semi-finals of the USD 1,000,000 hard court event.

Cara and Sania played tremendous service games, winning 24 of the 30 first service points. They surrendered serve only one time while saved four break chances.

Jelena and Arantxa could capitalise on only one of the five chances they got in the contest.

Sania and Cara will now take on the winners of the other semi-final match between the second seeded American pair of Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears and fourth seeds Spaniards Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro.
