Top seeds Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis were stunned by the pair of Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova in the Wimbledon 2016 women’s doubles quarters.

Defending champions committed way too many unforced errors and were far away from their potential game. After surrendering the first set 2-6, Mirza-Hingis did show some bite in the second but Babos-Shvedova held their own to pocket it 6-4.

Babos and Shvedova broke Hingis’ serve twice in the first set to clinch the first set in under half an hour. The Hungarian-Kazakh duo were far too strong with their groundstrokes and forced multiple errors from the World No 1 pairing.

In the second, Mirza was broken in the very first serve of the set to hand an early advantage which Babos and Shvedova held on to till 5-2 while breaking Hingis’ serve once again.

Mirza-Hingis then broke serve and consolidated with a hold but they couldn’t add another break to stretch the set and the match to lose in a little over an hour.
