Melbourne, Jan 24: Indian ace Sania Mirza and her Spanish partner Virginia Ruano Pascual crashed out of women's doubles in the Australian Open tennis at the Melbourne Park.
The 10th-seeded pair of Sania and Pascual went down 4-6, 3-6 to seventh seeds Alisa Kleybanova of Russia and Italian Francesca Schiavone in the third round.
With this loss, Sania's Australian Open campaign is over.
The 23-year-old crashed out of the singles in the first round and had to pull out of the mixed doubles because of calf injury to Mahesh Bhupathi.
Meanwhile, India's Rishika Sunkara moved to the second round of girl's singles beating Japanese Miyu Kato 6-4, 6-2.
