Birmingham: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza crashed out in the first round of the women`s singles event at the AEGON Classic tennis tournament here, losing to Tamira Paszek of Austria in a thrilling three-setter.

Sania, ranked 58th in the world, was stunned 3-6, 6-4, 2-6
by less-fancied Paszek at the USD 220,000 grasscourt event
yesterday.

The world ranked 80th Austrian will now be up against
Russian sixth seed Ekaterina Makarova, who got a bye in the
first round.

The tournament is the first of the two warm-up events on
grass ahead of next month`s All England Championships at
Wimbledon.
