New Delhi: Sania Mirza missed out on winning
her second title of the season after losing the final of the
USD 1,00,000 ITF tournament in Taipei along with local player
Hsieh Su-wei.

The second seeded Indo-Taipei pair lost 2-6, 4-6 to local
favourite third seeds Chang Kai-Chen and Chuang Chia-Jung in
the summit clash.

Sania had lost in the first round of the singles event
with a 3-6, 4-6 defeat against Serbian Bojana Jovanovski.

Sania had won her first title of the 2010 season at the
Guangzhou International Women`s Open along with Romanian
partner Edina Gallovits in September.

That was her ninth career doubles title. Sania won her
first and only WTA singles title in 2005 after beating Alyona
Bondarenko of Ukraine in the Hyderabad Open.

Her maiden Grand Slam title came only last year when she
won the mixed doubles event of the Australian Open along with
Mahesh Bhupathi.
