Melbourne: Indian star Sania Mirza and her Croatian partner Ivan Dodig came from behind to edge past the Indo-Canadian pair of Rohan Bopanna and Gabriela Dabrowski and reach the mixed doubles semifinals of the Australian Open here on Wednesday.

The second seeded Sania and Dodig held their nerve to save two match points in their 6-4, 3-6, 12-10 win against the unseeded pair of Bopanna and Dabrowski, who wasted as many as four match points, in a match that lasted an hour and seven minutes on Show Court 3 here.

Sania and Dodig will take on either Indo-Swiss duo of Leander Paes and Martina Hingis or Australian pair of Samantha Stosur and Sam Groth for a place in the final.
