Melbourne:

India's Sania Mirza said she'll try for more Grand Slam mixed doubles titles with Romanian Horia Tecau after the pair missed out in the Australian Open final on Sunday. Sania, 27, said she had made a great start to the year despite the loss to Canadian-French pair Daniel Nestor and Kristina Mladenovic, who won 6-3, 6-2.

Sania also reached the women's doubles quarter-finals with partner Cara Black, where they went out in three sets to eventual champions Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci of Italy.

"It's a good start to the year, I can't complain. Tough loss in the (women's) doubles and we lost to the eventual champions, which was Errani-Vinci, and then losing obviously in the final here," she said.

"I've had a decent week and we had a really good week in mixed and we're looking forward to the rest of the year. It's a good start to the year." (Match highlights)

Mirza ruled out a return to the singles circuit, saying her "body is broken". She has won two major mixed doubles titles with Mahesh Bhupathi, the 2009 Australian Open and the French Open in 2012.
