    The 35-year-old Mirza is India's most accomplished woman tennis player, having won six Grand Slam titles, including three mixed doubles trophies. Had Mirza won the mixed doubled title at the 2022 Wimbledon she would have completed a Career Slam in mixed doubles.

    Indian tennis star Sania Mirza's final appearance at Wimbledon ended in a disappointment after she lost her mixed doubles semi-final match against defending champions Neal Skupski and Desirae Krawczyk at the All England Club.
    Mirza who had teamed up with Croatian Mate Pavi for the Wimbledon was seeded sixth. The Indian-Croatian  pair went down 6-4 5-7 4-6 to Skupski of Great Britain and American Krawczyk in two hours 16 minutes on Wednesday night.

    Mirza's previous mixed doubles Grand Slam wins include the 2009 Australian Open and the 2012 French Open with Mahesh Bhupathi and the 2014 US Open with Brazillian Bruno Soares.
    Mirza and Pavic, both multiple-time Grand Slam winners, dominated the first set on the back of a strong serve.
    Mirza, who is in her last year on tour, and Pavic looked on course to seal the match as they led 4-2 in the second set but the duo lost five of the next six games as Skupski and Krawczyk, seeded second, forced the decider. In the decider, Mirza and Pavic drew first blood as they broke their opponent's serve but were immediately broken back. In the 12th game, Pavic double-faulted twice with Skupski and Krawczyk converting the match point. This is Mirza's best-mixed doubles performance at the All England Club. She had previously reached the quarterfinals in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
    Mirza, a six-time Grand Slam winner, had earlier announced that she would hang up her racquet at the conclusion of the 2022 season.
    The 35-year-old Indian star has now bid farewell to Wimbledon having won a women's doubles title in 2015, pairing Martina Hingis.
