Paris: Top seeds Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza saw their hopes of holding all four Grand Slam women’s doubles titles at the same time come to a shattering end on Sunday.

Bidding to become the first team to hold all four majors simultaneously since Serena and Venus Williams in 2010, Hingis and Mirza slumped to a shock 6-3, 6-2 loss to Czech pair Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova in the third round.
