Sania Mirza and her Zimbabwean partner Cara Black lost to top seeds Hsieh Su-Wei of Taiwan and Peng Shuai of China in straight sets in the women's doubles final of the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday.

The top seeds prevailed over the fifth-seeded Indo-Zimbabwean pair 7-6 (5), 6-2 in a contest that lasted an hour and 30 minutes to improve their perfect record in the WTA doubles finals to an 11-0 mark.

"First set we were down when we started. It's really windy, and (they're also a) really good doubles team. Black has a lot of experience for the doubles and gave us like a lot pressure. Really happy to win again," said Peng.
