Shaughnessy downs Mirza at Hopman Cup

Meghann Shaughnessy, substituting for Serena Williams at the Hopman Cup, proved to be a worthy substitute when she defeated Sania Mirza, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. However, Shaughnessy and Mardy Fish lost to Mirza and Rohan Bopanna in their doubles match.

Williams is scheduled to play on Monday. Her opponent will be Lucie Safarova, who has already lost one match, to Alicia Molik.
