The Indians had a disappointing outing at the US Open with both Leander Paes and Sania Mirza losing their doubles and mixed doubles matches respectively, in New York, on Friday.

Mixed doubles defending champions Sania and Bruno Soares lost 3-6, 3-6 to Czech Republic's Andrea Hlavackova-Lukasz Kubot in a first round contest lasting 65 minutes.

Earlier, Paes and Fernando Verdasco lost their second round match 5-7, 6-4, 3-6 to unseeded American giant-killing pair of Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey.

Paes and his Spanish partner Verdasco got the better of Germans Florian Mayer and Frank Moder 6-2, 6-3 in the opening round of the men's doubles competition.

In the women's doubles, the top-seeded Indo-Swiss pair of Sania and Martina Hingis is scheduled to take on Swiss Timea Bacsinszky and her Taipei partner Chia-Jung Chuang in the second round.
