India's Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Barbora Strycova missed out on their third title together after going down 1-6, 3-6 to Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova in the women's doubles final at the Wuhan Open.

The third seeds were looking for their third title together after winning the Cincinnati Open and Pan Pacific Open titles.
