Wimbledon: Bopanna-Dabrowski duo crashes out of mixed doubles


While Rohan Bopanna reached the mixed doubles quarter-finals with Canadian partner Gabriela Dabrowski, Sania Mirza and Ivan Dodig failed to cross the third round hurdle in the same event. The 10th seeds and French Open champions lost 7-6 (4), 4-6, 5-7 to the unseeded Finnish-British combo in exactly two hours on the centre court.

Heather Watson is not looking too far ahead in the defense of her Wimbledon mixed doubles title, but partner Henri Kontinen is already planning where to put the trophy. Kontinen-Watson beat the fourth-seeded pair Sania-Dodig 7-6 (4), 6-4 to book the quarter-final berth.
