Double misery for Sania at Stanford

July 17, 2008 11:16 IST

There was simply no end to Sania Mirza's misery in the WTA Bank of the West Classic tennis tournament as after her misadventure in the singles event, the Indian ace made a first round exit from doubles as well.

Sania and her Russian partner Anna Chakvetadze were brushed aside by the unheralded Czech pair of Eva Hrdinova and Vladimira Uhlirova 6-3 6-4 in the Tier II event in Stanford.

Sania had earlier crashed out of the singles event after a straight sets defeat at the hands of British qualifier Anne Keothavong.

The world number 33 was beaten 6-7 (4), 1-6 by the 83rd-ranked Keothavong in her first round match on Tuesday.
