sports Updated: Jun 01, 2009 00:03 IST

India's Leander Paes and Zimbabwean Cara Black crashed out of the French Open tennis' mixed doubles second round, losing 0-6, 6-1, 6-10 to Austrian Sybille Bammer and Lukasz Kubot of Poland.

The second-seeded Indo-Zimbabwean pair and the US Open champions made a strong comeback to make it set-all but could hit only 5 winners in the super-tiebreak to go down in little over an hour in Paris Saturday.

The Indian pair of Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi had already bowed out. The Australian Open mixed doubles champions lost to French Nathalie Dechy and Israel's Andy Ram 1-6, 5-7 in the first round.
