Sania Mirza put up a spirited challenge against multiple Grand Slam winner and second seed Venus Williams before going down in a tough three-setter in the second round of the $1 million WTA Family Circle Cup in Charleston.

The Indian ace, fresh after her doubles title win at a Florida WTA event last week, fought valiantly against Venus but ran out of steam as the world number five American used her experience to pocket the encounter 1-6, 6-3, 2-6.

The match, however, started on an expected note with Venus coming out all guns blazing against Sania.
