Indian mixed doubles pair of Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi suffered a straight set loss to French-Israeli duo of Nathalie Dechy and Andy Ram in the first round of the French Open here on Saturday.

The Indian duo, who won the Australian Open title in January, lost 1-6, 5-7 to Dechy and Ram combine in one hour and two minute contest.

With the loss, Sania's campaign at Rolland Garros ended as she had already exited from the singles and doubles competitions.
