Sania loses in Madrid Open first round

Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza was sent packing from the Madrid open following a first-round defeat to Russia's Elena Vesnina. Sania succumbed 4-6 3-6 in a match that lasted for over an hour without posing any serious threat to her doubles partner.

The Hyderabadi, who looked nervous with her first serve, dedicated seven double faults. Sania, however, remains in disputation for the doubles event of the euro 3,500,000 tournament as she gears up to face eighth-seeded Czech pair of Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, with Vesnina.
