Sania-Liezel had a shaky start as they were broken by their unseeded opponents in the in third game of match. However, the second seeds broke back in the next game to level the match.

The pairs broke each other once more before forcing a tie-break which the Indo-American combine took 7-4.

In the second set, after winning the first service game, Darija-Heather broke their opponents in the second game to go 2-0 up. Like the first set, Sania-Liezel again broke their opponents to level the match.
