Updated: Ana and Maria lose doubles final

Ana and Maria Kirilenko were beaten 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 by top seeds Zi Yan and Jie Zheng in the final of the Ordina Open.

The teenagers had chances to break early in the third set but the experience of the Chinese pairing took them to the title.

Zheng said: "They were a very good team. Both of them are higher-ranked in singles, so we expected a tough match. Ivanovic has a very good serve and forehand, which can be very dangerous."

It was Ana and Maria's first final together. They were semi-finalists in their previous two events and head to Wimbledon, where they are again playing with one another, with their confidence high.
