Sania Mirza’s campaign ends

Sania Mirza’s campaign in the $2 million Dubai Open came to an end when she and her Italian partner Mara Santangelo lost 3-6, 3-6 to top-seeded pair of Cara Black of Zimbabwe and Liezel Huber of the US in the second round on Wednesday.

Sania’s singles campaign ended on Tuesday after she lost her second round match to Kaia Kanepi of Estonia.

The Indo-Italian duo had advanced to the doubles pre-quarter finals after getting a walkover from Poland’s Urszula Radwanska and Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland in the first round.

An injury to Radwanska forced the Polish-Swiss pair to give away the match to their opponents.
