Sania Mirza is out of Wimbledon 2008
Sania Mirza went out in the second round at Wimbledon. She lost to Spain's Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez 6-0 4-6 9-7.
Sanchez had the first set wrapped up 21 minutes thanks to her deft serve and volley skills. No less contribution was made by Sania herself by making a mess of her shots. Sania's game didnt rise till the 3rd game of the second set. Already 6-0 and 2-0 down in the second set, Mirza played with grit. Egged on by the ever present Indian supporters, she broke Sanchez's serve and managed to hold her own to make it a set all.
The third set saw Sania race to a 4-2 lead. Inspite of Sanchez's fight Mirza held 4 match points. Unfortunately she wasted all four of them. Sanchez kept her nerve and earned a decisive break and then served out the decider and the match.
