Hong Kong:

Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza, making a comeback from a wrist injury, went down fighting against her nemesis Ana Chakvetadze, resulting in team Asia-Pacific's 0-2 defeat against Team Russia at World Team Challenge tournament on Thursday.

All the hopes of the Asian team making a comeback in the tie rested on Sania after Asia-pacific captain Chinese Zheng Jie lost the first singles to her counterpart Vera Zvonareva.

The Indian ace fought well against the world number 18 but could not help her team as Chakvetadze beat her 6-4, 6-4 to seal off the issue.

Earlier, Zvonareva beat Zheng 7-6 (3), 6-4, to give her team a 1-0 lead.
