India's Sania Mirza and her Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt lost in the first round of the mixed doubles at the French Open, suffering a shocking straight-set defeat at the hands of Cara Black and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, in Paris on Friday.
The top seeded Indo-Swede combination was no match for their unseeded opponents and lost 2-6, 3-6 in a little under an hour.
Black-Qureshi will now face the winner of the match between Sorana Cirstea of Romania-David Marrero and Su-Wei Hsieh of Taipei-Denmark's Frederik Nielsen.
Sania will partner American Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the women's doubles, where they are seeded seventh.
The Indo-American pair face the French duo of Alize Cornet and Virginie Razzano in the first round.
