Cara crashes out at Aussie Open

HARARE - Cara Black and her Colombian partner yesterday bowed out of the Australian Open mixed doubles competition after going down in the quarter-finals.

Juan Cabal and Black were dismissed in the last-eight match by third seeds Kristina Mladenovic and Daniel Nestor in straight sets 2-6 3-6.

Mladenovic of France and Nestor of Canada fired 26 winners in comparison to their opponents 16.

The Colombia-Zimbabwe pairing had 11 unforced errors whilst Mladenovic and Nesto produced 10.

Whilst the fifth seeded Cabal and Black had home, the third seeds now face India’s Sania Mirza and Brazil’s Bruno Soares in the semifinals.

Mirza and Soares are the number one seeds.

They had a pretty straight forward route to the semifinals.

Mirza and her top-seeded Brazilian partner Bruno Soares carved out an easy 6-2 6-2 win over the home pair of Casey Dellacqua and John Peers in the quarter-finals, which lasted only 53 minutes.

Meanwhile, Takanyi Garanganga is hoping to carry on his good form at the Royal Lahaina Challenger presented by American Savings Bank and hosted by the Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch and Royal Lahaina Resort.

Garanganga was yesterday expected to face Denis Kudla of the United Sates in the quarter-finals at the time of going to print.

He had eased to the quarter finals of the Maui Challenger following a 3-6 6-3 6-2 win over Chuhan Wang of China.
