Sania loses Wimbledon semi-final‎


It was a bad day for Sania Mirza at Wimbledon on Friday. The Indian ace lost in the mixed doubles quarter-final and women’s doubles semi-final.
After losing in the women’s doubles semi-final in the company of Elena Vesnina, 3-6, 1-6, to the Czech Republic’s Kveta Peschke-Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia earlier in the day, Sania appeared on course for a berth in the semi-final of the mixed doubles, as she and Rohan Bopanna took the first set against Australia’s Hanley and Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei.
But they frittered away the good start and lost 6-1, 2-6, 2-6. Sania and Bopanna displayed excellent co-ordination in the first set during which they broke in the third game before proceeding to take the set in 20 minutes. But it was an altogether different story in the next after Hanley-Hsieh broke in the second and third games.
