Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Barbora Strycova suffered a straight-set loss against Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova in the summit clash of the WTA Wuhan Open on Saturday.

The third seeds lost 1-6 4-6 to the fifth seeded US-Czech pair of Mattek-Sands and Safarova in the finals of the USD 2,589,000 tournament that lasted a little over an hour.

Mattek-Sands and Safarova converted six of the eight break points that came their way, while the Indo-Czech pair squandered six out of eight.

Sania has won three titles in her last four tournaments she has played after splitting with Swiss Martina Hingis.
