Sania Mirza bids adieu to Australian Open with quarterfinal loss in mixed doubles

MELBOURNE: Trailblazing India tennis star Sania Mirza’s swansong appearance at the Australian Open ended with a quarterfinal loss to local pair Jaimee Fourlis and Jason Kubler in the mixed doubles event here on Tuesday.
Mirza, partnering American Rajeev Ram, lost the match 4-6, 6-7 to wildcard entries Fourlis and Kubler in one hour 30 minutes.
The 35-year-old Mirza is India’s most accomplished woman tennis player, having won six Grand Slam titles, including three mixed doubles trophies.
She was aiming to add a second Australian Open mixed doubles title to her kitty after making a first round exit in the women’s doubles event last week.
