Sania-Bhupathi enter second round

July 05, 2007 10:11 IST

Sania Mirza [Images] and Mahesh Bhupathi [Images], teaming up in a Grand Slam event for the first time, advanced to the mixed doubles second round at Wimbledon with a straight sets victory over David Skoch of Czech Republic and Janette Husarova of Slovakia.

Sania and Bhupathi overcame the challenge of Skoch and Husarova 6-3, 6-4.

The Indian duo will next play Cara Black of Zimbabwe and Marcin Matkowski of Poland.

Sania's campaign in both the singles' and doubles' category has already ended while compatriot Bhupathi, winner of ten Grand Slams, is only playing mixed doubles after withdrawing from the men's doubles.
