Bopanna-Rodionova win,  Sania-Dodig out of Wimbledon

Bopanna and Rodionova, seeded 13th, defeated Treat Huey of Phillipines and Alicja Rosolska of Poland 6-3 7-5 in a second round match that lasted little less than an hour. The Indo-Australian pair will next face Colombian duo of Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Mariana Duque-Marino.

Sania and Ivan, however, bowed out after losing to unseeded British duo of Neal Skupski and Anna Smith 6-4 3-6 5-7 in a match that lasted over two hours here. 

The Mirza-Dodig pair paid for their profligacy as they bungled on multiple match points in the final set before the unheralded British came out trumps. Both pairs traded a couple of breaks in the first set before the top seeds got a third break, which enabled them to close the set at 6-4.
