Madrid: Sania Mirza and her Russian partner Elena Vesnina continued their good run at the Madrid Open, storming into the quarter-finals after notching up a straight-sets win over Nadia Petrova and Anastasia Rodionova.

The unseeded Indo-Russian combination recorded a 6-3, 7-5 win over the Russian-Australian pair in the second round of the euro 3,500,000 clay court event.

Sania and Elena converted all the three break chances that came their way in the first set and two of four in the second to record the win in one hour and 27 minutes.

They now have a tough job at hand as they face second seeds Kveta Peschke of Czech Republic and Katarina Serbotnik of Slovania in the last-eight round.
