Sania crashes out of the singles but advances in doubles.


After the struggling in the first round Sania crashed out of the Wimbledon ladies singles tournament. This year also Sania was unable to break the jinx. Probably she would take another year or two to come out of it.

Meanwhile in another exiting match Sania partnering American Bethanie Mattek beat locals Elena Batacha and Naomi Cavady 6-4, 6-2 in the first round of the Wimbledon ladies doubles tournament on Thursday. Strangely Sania has always performed better in the doubles version of the game.

However our best wishes are always With Sania.

Sania in the Second Round of Wimbledon 2008

Since the beginning of the year 2008 Sania is continuously living under the shadow of injuries. Here in the Wimbledon 2008 also, she played her first match of this year’s most prestigious tournament with shoulder problem.

Although, the setting was perfect for her, as her opponent in the first round, Catalina Castano of Colombia was ranked 146th against Sania’s 32nd. Beside that Castano has lost all of her matches in her outings in the previous editions of this tournament. These were the plus points that favored Sania before the match began.

In the opening set, Sania got the perfect break of 3 – 2 from Castano but, she was unable to cash in and the set was ultimately dragged to the tie-breaker. Ultimately Sania won the set.

From the next round Sania was again disturbed by the nagging shoulder injury, but she fought the injury with time-out and refused to surrender before it.

In the final round Sania showed her wits to overpower her shoulder injury and won the set and match with a final score card reading 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 6-4 in Sania’s favor.

Now Sania will play with Spain’s Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in the second round. A win in the second round would give
her the third round birth for the first time.

Best of luck Sania…. Let’s show them you are the real fighter.

Sania Not yet fully recovered….

After a long absence from the competitive arena, Sania made her appearance in the DLF Classic Tournament in Birmingham England. But the appearance of the Indian star was quite short on the court. She was defeated within one hour in the first round itself.

After a long wait Sania reached to the finals of the Australian Open Mixed Doubles tournament but her journey to the mixed doubles crown was stopped on the way by Tiantian Sun of China and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia -7-6, 6-4.

It is being said that Sania was unable to to cope up the pressure of the match due to the injuries received by her earlier in the year. However we would say that it was a good effort by Sania to prove some points before her fans.
Well Done Sania Keep Up the tempo. You have to go miles and miles.
