Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza fall in Eastourne quarters

The top-seeded pair of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis lost 3-6, 3-6 to Darija Jurak and Anastasia Rodionova in the quarterfinals of the women's doubles at the Aegon International in Eastbourne on Wednesday.

Jurak (Croatia) and Rodionova (Australia) won the match in just under an hour.

Earlier in the day, Mirza and Hingis had beaten Lucie Safarova (Czechoslovakia) and Samantha Stosur (Australia) 6-1, 2-6, 10-4 in the first round.

Not the grass preparation either were hoping for a week before Wimbledon, but I think having to play 3 sets and comeback to play later the same day is the reason for their loss. 

Hopefully they can bounce back and defend their title at Wimbledon next week. Good luck ladies!.
