Sania Mirza lose in French Open 2011 Final

Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka won the women's doubles final at the French Open on Friday after dominating India's Sania Mirza and Russia's Elena Vesnina 6-4 6-3. Hlavackova and Hradecka are the sixth unseeded team to capture a major in three decades and are the second unseeded French Open finalists in 30 years. They collect euros 330,000 while Sania and Elena take home euros 165,000.
Sania had created history Wednesday when she became the first Indian woman to enter a Grand Slam doubles final. She and Elena upset top seeds Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pannetta and then beat fourth seeds American Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond to enter the final. Sania and Elena, both 24, came together early in 2011 and with titles at Indian Wells and Charleston, were having a good year on the circuit, by holding a 20-4 record.
