Montreal: Sania Mirza and Cara Black fail in the final hurdle of the Rogers Cup. The Indo-Zimbabwean pair suffer a 7-6 (4), 6-3 defeat to top seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci on Sunday.
The 90-minute match at the Uniprix Stadium in Montreal witnessed nine service breaks, including five for the champions. With the Rogers Cup title, Errani and Vinci have earned their 21st career title and fifth this year, thus consolidating their firm grip on the Number One Doubles ranking.
Playing in the first tournament since lifting the Women`s Double crown in Wimbledon, the Italian duo survived the first set tie-breaker then dominated the Indo-Zimbawean pair after trailing 0-2 in the second set to win their first Rogers Cup title. They are the first Italians ever to win a Rogers Cup.
