Doubles defeat

Ana and Maria Kiirlenko lost 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 to second seeds Cara Black and Anna-Lena Groenefeld in the quarter-finals of the Rogers Cup doubles competition on Thursday.

The teenagers were broken in the opening game of the match and, after an exchange of breaks, lost the opening set 6-4, the second seeds sealing it with an ace.

Ana and Maria hit back, winning twice as many points as the more experienced team in the second set, as they levelled at one set apiece.

But the more senior pairing's experience paid off and they clinched the third set, and with it the match.
