Top ranked women’s doubles pair Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza had their 41-match winning streak halted on Thursday after they were beaten in the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open.
The Swiss and Indian, the current Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Australian Open champions, were beaten 2-6, 6-4, 10-5 by Russian duo Elena Vesnina and Daria Kasatkina.
“That was an amazing match for us,” Vesnina was quoted as saying by the WTA Tour.
“We played against them just a week ago, and they’re one of the greatest doubles teams we have in women’s tennis. I think everything worked today for us to win, and we’re just so excited about it.”
Mirza and Hingis had started their win streak in September at the U.S. Open, the first of nine straight titles.
