Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis' 41-match winning streak came to halt after the World No 1 women's doubles pair went down fighting in the quarterfinals of the Qatar Open.

Sania and her Swiss partner Martina lost 2-6, 6-4, 10-5 to Russian pair Elena Vesnina and Daria Kasatkina late on Thursday night.

"So that's how the cookie crumbled… just kidding… We'll be back stronger than before," Sania Mirza tweeted.

Mirza and Hingis had started their win streak in September at the US Open, the first of nine straight titles.

At the end of 2015 season, the two had won nine titles together including the prestigious Wimbledon and US Open apart from the year-end WTA Finals.

In all, Sania won 10 titles in 2015 -- nine with Martina and one with American Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Sania and Hingis have together won four titles this year out of an overall trophy count of 13.

They started the year with wins in Brisbane and Sydney before completing a hat-trick of Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open. The duo had won the St Petersburg Ladies title earlier this month.
