Saniya MirzaNEW DELHI: After women’s doubles, Sania Mirza stumbled in the mixed doubles when the Indian tennis ace was crashed out of the US Open in the second round on Sunday.

Sania, partnering with Daniel Nestor of Canada, was beaten by Carly Gullickson and Travis Parrott of USA in a straight of 6-1, 6-4.

Sania is already out of the US Open in the singles and women’s doubles. Sania and Francesca Schiavone of Italy failed to deliver at crucial points to lose 2-6, 6-1, 5-7 against the unseeded duo of Gisela Dulko of Argentina and Shahar Peer of Israel in the second round match.

Although Sania is out of the US Open, India’s presence is still strong. On Saturday, Indian aces Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes breezed into the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles event with their respective partners following straight set wins over their opponents in the US Open tennis tournament.
