Wimbledon 2017: Bopanna-Dabrowski crash out in mixed doubles quarters

The 10th seeded Indo-Canadian pair will meet the unseeded duo of Heather Watson of Britain and Henri Kontinen of Finland in the quarter-finals.

INDIAN stars Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza encountered contrasting fortunes in their respective mixed doubles matches at the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

Bopanna and Dabrowski started off well with a narrow win in the first set before Kontinen and Watson took their game up a notch to take the second. Bopanna will be looking to set his record straight as he has never gone past the quarter final in the mixed doubles category.

Welcoming the directive, advocate and human rights activist Rakesh Meihoubam said: "Though much delayed, justice will prevail now".

The unseeded duo - who'd never played together before their run to the title a year ago - needed less than an hour and 30 minutes to complete the upset over the veteran team, 7-6 (4), 6-4. Bopanna and Dabrowski, who had won the French Open together, pushed the defending champions all the way before Kontinen and Watson edged them in a nail-biter 6-7, 6-4, 7-5 in exactly two hours on Centre Court. Desai was the best performer among the juniors as she reached the third round in girls singles and the second round in the doubles.
