Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Lucy Haradica demonstrated a fearless brand of tennis, but even younger and senior American singles players Coco Goff and Jessica Pegola won the third round of the women’s doubles at the French Open in Paris on Tuesday. ۔ Despite a combined age of 72 years, Mirza and Haradica produced some high-quality tennis but lost 4-6, 3-6 to Pegola, finishing 11th in singles and 23rd in the world.

Mirza was impressive with his lower and angled four hands while Haradica’s powerful backhand was a treat to watch from the baseline but the Americans found the key points that determined the outcome of the match.

Mirza and Haradika were 3-5 down in the opening set but Goff, serving for the set, made a double error to give the break a chance.

Mirza easily sent a volley for the team to capture the break point. Haradica made the next serve and on the 30-all, Sania threw an overhead smash to give the Americans a set point, which turned out to be a mistake in returning the check. Mirza and Hardika had by now assessed their rivals and a fearless and confident confrontation had begun.


The Indo-Czech duo broke Pegula’s serve in the first game in the second set and Mirza took it easy 2-0. Goff’s cervix was pressed. At the age of 30, Mirza went for a deeper return but it ran on the baseline. Hradecka also went for the big shots but his unnecessary mistake put the Americans on board. Pegula found a brilliant angle-winner who sped off from the corner of the court as Hradika served 15-40 to make it 2-2. He was in danger of leaving the service again but Mirza saved three break points in the sixth game. The Americans also saved three breaks.

However, the Americans found a way to get another break and Pegula ended the match and the pair reached the quarter finals.
