Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Romanian partner Horia Tecau have lost their bid to win the Australian Open mixed doubles final match at Melbourne Park on Sunday.


Mirza and Tecau were defeated 3-6, 2-6 by Canada's Daniel Nestor and France's Kristina Mladenovic at the Rod Laver Arena in just their second tournament together.

Mirza, who won the 2009 Australian Open and 2012 French Open mixed doubles titles along with fellow Indian Mahesh Bhupathi, and Tecau were defeated in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year, by Nestor and Mladenovic, who went on to win the crown.
