India's Sania Mirza and her Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt crashed out in the first round of the mixed doubles event on Friday, suffering a shocking straight-set defeat at the hands of Cara Black and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi in Paris.

The top seeded Indo-Swede combination were no match for their unseeded opponents, losing 2-6 3-6 in little less than an hour.

Black and Qureshi will now face the winner of the match between Sorana Cirstea of Romania and David Marrero and Su-Wei Hsieh of Taipei and Denmark's Frederik Nielsen.

Sania, however, will partner American Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the women's doubles event where they have been seeded seventh.

The Indo-American pair will face French duo of Alize Cornet and Virginie Razzano in the first round.
