LONDON: Sania Mirza and Kirsten Flipkens were on Monday knocked out of the women’s doubles event of the Wimbledon Championships by Swiss great Martina Hingisand Yung-Jan Chan.
Sania, who has dropped to number seven in the world in the doubles chart, is still alive in the mixed doubles with Croatian partner Ivan Dodig.
Sania had lost in pre-quarterfinals of the Australian Open and first round at the French Open, early this season.
In the juniors competition, Mahak Jain advanced to the girls singles second round after defeating Croatia’s Lea Boskovic 7-6(4) 4-6 6-4.
Siddhant Banthia though made a first round exit from the boys singles following a tame 6-3 2-6 5-7 defeat against French Matteo Martineau.
