It was a forgettable day for the Indians at the the US Open with both Sania Mirza and Leander Paes losing their respective mixed doubles matches.

Sania and her mixed doubles partner Colin Fleming were knocked out of the US Open in the quarter finals. The Indo-Brit duo lost to fourth seeded pair of Kveta Peschka and Marcin Matkowski 6-3, 7-5 in just over an hour. This loss ends Sania's campaign at the 2012 US Open.

Paes and partner Elena Vesnina were also knocked out in the quarters by the seventh seeded Czech pair of Lucie Hradecka and Frantisek Cermak 7-6, 7-5.

The Czeck duo needed only 103 minutes to finish off the game. But it's not all bad news for Paes as he still has a chance in the quarterfinals of the Mens Doubles event.
