Sania-Cara to Open US Open Campaign Against Karolina-Kristyna

India's Sania Mirza and her Zimbabwean partner Cara Black were today seeded third in the womne's doubles event of the US Open and they will open their campaign against Czech pair of Karolina Pliskova and Kristyna Pliskova.

In the men's doubles event India will be represented by veteran Leander Paes and Davis Cupper Rohan Bopanna.

Paes and his Czech partner Radek Stepanek, the defending champions, have been seeded sixth and they face Italian combo of Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini in their first round.
