Indian ace Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Lucie Hradecka were eliminated in the opening round of the Wimbledon women’s doubles tournament. India’s veteran Sania Mirza was knocked out in the first round of women’s doubles this year at Wimbledon. The journey on grass is not yet complete for Indian veteran Sania Mirza, competing in the mixed doubles event alongside her Croatian partner Mate Pavic.
Indian ace Sania Mirzas failed to run past the third round of the mixed doubles event at Wimbledon last year, and she still has one chance to make history by pairing up with Croatian partner Mate Pavic at the mixed doubles event. Mate Pavic of Croatia is the world’s number three doubles player and a heavy favourite to win the men’s doubles. Mirza and Australias Anastasia Rodionova advanced to the third round of the Women’s doubles event at Wimbledon, where they fell to the Williams sisters.
In the doubles, Mirza had perhaps the most significant moment in her career, reaching a Grand Slam final and ultimately finishing as runners-up with Vesnina, losing to Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. The duo then lost unexpectedly in the first round at the Australian Open; however, Mirza did make it into the quarterfinals at the 2013 U.S. Open in mixed doubles with Bob Bryan. Ultimately, the double Olympic medallist Mirza lost a match with her partner Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, two hours and four minutes later.
Sania Mirza and Czech partner Lucie Hradeckas were down 3-5 in the first set, but Coco Gauff, serving for the group, committed a double fault, allowing their opponents to break. Despite a combined 72 years old, Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Lucie Hradecka produced high-quality tennis but lost. With 43 titles, Mirza has won more WTA doubles titles in doubles tour events than any other active player. Mirza is thus far one of two Indian women’s tennis players to have won WTA titles in any form and is also the only player in the Top 100 in the singles rankings. Mirza became the first Indian woman to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam event at the 2002 U.S. Open, beating Mashona Washington, Maria Elena Camerina, and Marion Bartoli before losing in the 16 to the top seed Maria Sharapova.
At the Australian Open, they were seeded first and won the doubles title, which was Mirza’s third major. Six-time grand slam winner Sania Mirza of India and Czech Lucie Hradecka fell to each other in Wednesday’s first round of the Women’s doubles event at Wimbledon 2022. Six-time grand slam champion Sania Mirza is set to continue her partnership with the Czech Lucie Hradecka in the women’s doubles, while Rohan Bopanna has given Wimbledon 2022 a miss. There are no Indian tennis players in the singles, with Ramkumar Ramathan and Yuki Bhambri both eliminated earlier in the first qualifying round at Wimbledon.
