Sania Mirza & Cara Black finish runners-up in Stuttgart WTA event

Stuttgart, Germany:

Sania Mirza will have to wait for her first title of the 2014 season as she lost the summit clash of the PORSCHE Tennis Grand Prix with partner Cara Black, here on Sunday.

Playing their second final of the season, the second-seeded Indo-Zimbabwean pair lost 2-6, 3-6 to top seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci in one hour and 10 minutes in the final of the USD 710,000 clay court WTA premier event.

Sania had reached the Indian Wells final last month but there also she had ended runners-up with Cara.

Nevertheless, it was good start for Sania and Cara in the clay court season ahead of the French Open, the Red Clay Grand Slam, starting next month in Paris.

After losing serve twice in the opening set, Sania and Cara could do little against the world's best doubles team.

They split USD 16,129 as prize  money and earned 305 points each.
