World number one doubles pair Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza have ended their partnership after 16 months. The pair have won 14 titles since April 2015, including three consecutive Grand Slams.

However, a 41-match winning streak ended in February and they have failed to advance beyond the quarter-finals in their past four events. Hingis and Mirza will reunite to defend their WTA Finals title in Singapore in October.
