Indian Wells: Defending champions Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis crashed out of the Indian Wells Masters after suffering a shock straight sets defeat in the women’s doubles event here on Monday.
The top-seeded Indo-Swiss pair suffered a 7-6(7), 6-4 defeat at the hands of American-Russian duo of Vania King and Alla Kudryavtseva in the second round contest that lasted one hour and 32 minutes.
This was Mirza and Hingis’ first straight-sets loss since the summer of 2015.
Mirza and Hingis’ 41-match winning streak came to a halt after they were beaten in the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open last month. (ANI)
