Trailblazing Indian tennis star Sania Mirza’s swansong appearance at the Australian Open ended with a quarter-final loss to local pair Jaimee Fourlis and Jason Kubler in the mixed doubles event on Tuesday.

Mirza, along with American Rajeev Ram, lost the match 4-6, 6-7 to wild cards Fourlis and Kubler in one hour and 30 minutes.

Mirza, 35, is India’s most successful tennis player, having won six Grand Slam titles, including three mixed doubles trophies.

She was aiming to add a second Australian Open mixed doubles title to her kitty after making a first-round exit in the women’s doubles event last week.

Melbourne Park has been a happy hunting ground for Mirza, who recently announced that he will be retiring at the end of this season. Two of her six Grand Slam titles have come at the Australian Open.

As well as winning the mixed doubles title in 2009 with compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi, Mirza also won the women’s doubles trophy alongside Swiss great Martina Hingis in 2016, which was also her last Grand Slam win.

With Mirza’s loss, the Indian challenge also came to an end at the first Slam of the year.
