Losing to 55th ranked Kerber 4-6, 1-6, India's ace tennis player made an exit from the very first round of the women singles event of the grass court Grand Slam tournament.
But all is not over for the 113th ranked Indian as her double's campaign with Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark is still to come.
Mirza and Wozniacki will be clashing against Anne Keothavong and Melanie South of Great Britain in the opening round.
Sania Mirza, who hails from the southern city of Hyderabad, recently married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik amid a slew of controversies.
With her campaign in the singles meeting an early end, Sania's fans can now only hope she has learned lessons from her short-lived singles campaign and use it for the upcoming doubles' games
