Bhupathi-Sania bow out

July 05, 2007 19:49 IST

Mahesh Bhupathi [Images] and Sania Mirza [Images] went down tamely in the second round of the mixed doubles at Wimbledon on Thursday.

The Indian pair was beaten by ninth seeds Marcin Matkowski of Poland and Cara Black of Zimbabwe 6-4, 6-4.

The defeat ended both Sania and Bhupathi's campaign in the grass court Grand Slam.

In the first round, Bhupathi and Sania got the better of David Skoch of Czech Republic and Janette Husarova of Slovakia, winning 6-3, 6-4.

Sania had earlier bowed out of the singles and doubles, while Bhupathi, winner of ten Grand Slams, only played mixed doubles after withdrawing from the men's doubles.
