Australian Open: Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna in mixed doubles semi-finals
Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza advanced to the Australian Open mixed doubles semi-finals without having to move a muscle as they got a walkover from Jelena Ostapenko and David Vega Hernandez here on Tuesday.
The Indian team has not yet dropped a set in the mixed team competition. They will take on third seeds Desirae Krawczyk and Neal Skupski in the last-four stage.
They are the only Indians left in the fray at the Australian Open.
For Sania this will be her last grand slam appearance and she will naturally want to go out on a high.
Bopanna and his partner Mathew Ebden, seeded 10th, had made a first-round exit from the men’s doubles event.
Sania and her Kazkah partner Anna Danilina also lost in the women’s doubles second round.
Ramkumar Ramanathan and his Mexican partner Miguel Angel Reyes-Varela, and the pair of Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni had also made first-round exits. Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and N Sriram Balaji had reached the second round before bowing out.
No Indian featured in the singles competition here.
