London:

Already out of singles competition, Sania Mirza's doubles campaign also ended after she and her partner Chia-Jung Chuang suffered a straight set loss to Alla Kudryavtseva and Monica Niculescu in the second round of the Wimbledon Championships here on Saturday.

The 15th seeded Indo-Taipei pair lost 2-6, 3-6 to the unseeded Russian-Romanian combination.

Sania and Chia had their chances but failed to grab on those. Out of seven break points they got they could convert just one and paid the price.

Sania's singles campaign was cut short in the second round by her friend Sorana Cirstea.

The Indian would now look to put up a better show in the mixed doubles event as she has reached the second round with compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi.
