It's over for India

Melbourne: It was all over for India at the Australian Open after Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi crashed out of the mixed doubles after losing their respective quarter final matches in contrasting fashion, on Thursday.

Third seeds Sania and her American partner Bob Bryan were stunned 5-7, 4-6 by the unseeded Czech duo of Lucie Hradecka and Frantisek Cermak.

Fifth seeds Bhupathi and Russian partner Nadia Petrova lost 3-5, 6-3, 11-13 to the Australian combine of Jarmila Gajdosova and Matthew Ebden.

Sania and Bryan were the first to take the court and the profligate combination frittered away seven of the eight break points it earned and ended up being broken twice by the rival pair, which clinched the opening set in 37 minutes.
