LONDON: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Croatian partner Ivan Dodig will look to cement their place in the mixed doubles quarter-finals of the Wimbledon when they take on the British-Finnish pair of Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen here on Tuesday.

Mirza and Dodig, who are seeded fourth in the tournament, made it to the last-16 after fending off Japanese pair of Yosuke Watanuki and Makoto Ninomiya 7-6 (5), 6-2 in an exhilarating clash that lasted one hour and 18 minutes.

Earlier this year, the Indo-Croatian pair made it to the finals of the season-opening Australian Open before going down in straight sets at the hands of the American-Colombian team of Abigail Spears and Juan Sebastian Cabal.

Mirza and Dodig also reached the quarter-finals of the French Open, but the pair slumped to a 3-6, 4-6 defeat against India's Rohan Bopanna and Canada's Gabriela Dabrowski to make an exit.

Yesterday, Mirza and her women's doubles partner Belgian partner Kirsten Flipkens crashed out of the Wimbledon's doubles event after suffering a straight-sets defeat against Switzerland's Martina Hingis and Chan Yung-jan of Taiwan in the Round of 16.

Third seeded Hingis and Yung-jan defeated the 13th seed 6-2, 6-4 in a match that lasted for one hour and seven minutes.

The Indian tennis ace had won the Wimbledon title in 2015 with Hingis.
