India’s Sania Mirza and her doubles partner Barbara Strycova lost in the quarter-finals of the Indian Wells Masters tennis tournament in California on Tuesday.

The Indo-Czech pair suffered a 4-6, 4-6 defeat against Swtzerland’s Martina Hingis and Taiwan’s Yung-jan Chan in the quarter-final.

Earlier, the pair defeated Sara Errani of Italy and Alicja Rosolska of Poland 6-2, 6-3 in the previous round.

This was also the end of the Indian presence in the tournament as Leander Paes and his Argentine partner Juan Martin del Potro went down 3-6, 4-6 to American Sam Querrey and Gilles Müller of Luxembourg in the men’s doubles.

Querrey and Muller smashed six aces against just two by Paes-Potro to chalk out a win in just over an hour.
