India's challenge at the Cincinnati Masters came to an end as Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza bowed out of the tournament after losing their quarterfinal and semi final with respective partners in the men's and women's doubles.

Rohan Bopanna and his Croatian partner Ivan Dodig lost 1-6 7-6 7-10 to second seeds Lukasz Kubot of Poland and Marcelo Melo in an enthralling three-setter quarterfinal that lasted one hour and 36 minutes.

In the WTA event, being run simultaneously, Sania Mirza and Shuai Peng lost to Hsieh Su-Wei of Taiwan and Moncia Niculescu of Romania 4-6 6-7 in the women's doubles semifinal lasting one hour and 33 minutes.

The Indo-Chinese duo was found wanting in the first set but made amends later on, forcing the second set into a tiebreaker. However, Niculescu and Su-Wei were up to the task and did not allow the match to go to the decider.

In the men's singles, Ramkumar Ramanathan had lost in the second round while Leander Paes and his partner Alexander Zverev had existed in the first round itself in the men's doubles.
