CARA Black and Sania Mirza gave a scare to top seeds Su-Wei Hsieh and Shuai Peng before losing the women’s doubles quarterfinal at the WTA Madrid Open last week.

The fifth seeded Indo-Zimbabwean pair lost 7-5, 1-6, 8-10 to the Taipei-Chinese team in one hour and 30 minutes in the euro 3,671,405 clay court tournament.

There was not much to separate the two pairs as the Portugal Open winners won 62 points to 67 of their top seeded rivals.

Cara and Sania converted four break chances while Hsieh and Peng broke them five times in the match which was decided via a thrilling Super Tie-Breaker.

Sania and Cara split euro 27,270 as prize money and earned 215 ranking points each.
