Wimbledo:Sania Mirza’s lost her clothes

Sorana Cirstea and Sania Mirza are such good friends off the tennis court that when Mirza arrived at Wimbledon with a light suitcase she knew who to turn to for a supply of spare clothes.

Thus it was 19-year-old Cirstea's kit that saw them both safely through to today's second round of the women's singles, where the two girls will face each other across the net.

Fortunately, the wardrobe issue has already been sorted out. Mirza, the 22-year-old from India who beat Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 in the first round, has been shopping. “I don't need to borrow stuff from Sorana again,” she said.

Friendship now has to be put aside as she faces the Romanian 28th seed, who appeared out of nowhere to beat two top 10 players on the way to the quarter-finals at Roland Garros.

Mirza said: “We're both professionals and we know where to draw the line.”
