The two Indian wildcards rebounded from their loss in last year’s Australian Open final to beat Nathalie Dechy of France and Israel’s Andy Ram 6-3, 6-1 at Melbourne Park.

Mirza, 22, had already achieved a series of firsts for Indian women tennis players, including the highest ranking of 18, and is seen as the nation’s hope for success in the future.

She became the first Indian female to capture any grand slam title when she partnered Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova to win the 2003 Wimbledon junior doubles then in 2005 she became the first Indian woman to win a WTA event when she won at Hyderabad.
