New York

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.

Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi are seeded 13th and they have been pitted against Italian team of Daniele Bracciali and Andreas Seppi.

Bopanna and Qureshi had their most successful campaign at the Grand Slam at the US Open in 2010, when they lost to legendary Brayn Bothers, Bob and Mike in the summit clash.

No Indian is competing in the men's singles as Somdev crashed out in the first round of the qualifying event while Yuki Bhambri and Sanam Singh fell in the second round.
