In the past week Sania really had a dream run. She crushed her opponents to reach in the finals of the Bank of West Classic Tournament. First she defeated Patty Schnyder on her way to the Semi Finals where she defeated Sybille Bammer 6-2,5-7,6-3 now she was in the Finals of the tournament for the first time since the layoff from the active Tennis due to her injury.

Sunday not proved lucky to Sania this time and she lost the match to Anna Chakvetadze 6-3, 6-2. When contacted she told that she was not feeling well and top of physical fitness that day. On the other hand Anna had something else to say, she said that Sania has improved a lot within the period when hey last met in the Cincinnati.

However we congratulate Sania for finishing as the runner up to the tournament.

This was the story so far regarding the Singles arena let us now have a peek over the doubles arena. The Pair of Sania -Peer reached in the finals of the doubles tournament and here they defeated the pair of Victoria Azarenka and Anna Chakvetadze 6-4, 7-6 (5). we can say only to take care for Sania to reach to the optimum level of the physical fitness before the start of the US Open.

It is Stanford Open and Sania is on fire. She has already beaten Japan’s Akiko Morigami 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7/5) in the first round of the $ 600,000 Bank of West Classic Tournament. Now she is in the second round of the tournament where she would meet with the French sixth seed Tatiana Golovin, who also reached to the second round of the tournament.

In the meanwhile the news has poured in that Sania has teamed up with Mattek in the forthcoming US Open for the doubles tournament. Stanford is giving opportunity to the players to warm up for the upcoming US Open.

It seems after watching the performance of Sania so far, that this tournament is providing Sania a perfect stage to ready her for the US Open.

We wish her all of our very best wishes for her forthcoming matches.

It was touch and go for Sania in the singles event Semi Finals but the positive aspect of the tournament for Sania was reaching in the Semi Finals after her injury. After second set she was drowned and literally out of the tournament. As i was writing this news for you somebody from my back yelled.
“Sania has won the tournament.”

In utter confusion i checked frantically and found that Sania has really won the Doubles crown at the Cincinnati, her pairing with Mattek did wonders. In the Final of the doubles round Sania and Mattek perfectly complemented each other and won comfortably over their rivals Alina Jidkova and Tatiana Poutchek
7-6(4), 7-5. The match was very exiting and it provided perfect entertainment and excitement to the fans .

I can say only one thing at this point, Keep it up Sania !!!

Repeating her feat as she did last year Sania reached in the Quarter Finals this year too, in the singles and doubles tournaments.

In the singles she defeated Varvara Lepchenko 6-2, 6-2. In the doubles event also Sania and Mettack won their fixture day before against Catalina Castano and Meng Yuan 6-4, 6-0.

It seems really true that now Sania is taking each match in a different perspective and that started to give results now.

Well Done Sania. Keep it up.

Sania smoothly sailed into the second round of the $175000 Cincinnati Open Tournament. She defeated unseeded American Abigail Spears 6-4,6-3.

After the match Sania was quite happy about the proceedings. With reference to her injuries and lay off of two and half month she said that the process of the recovery is still on and it will take some more time to recover fully. She is feeling 90% fit at the moment but it is difficult to perform certain specific movements on court till date. However she felt optimistic about the recovery by quoting that she is feeling much better than even the pre-injury period.

In this tournament she would participate in the doubles also and for that purpose she has teamed up with Bethanie Mattek of America.

At last the mixed doubles duo of Sania and Mahesh Bhupati crashed out of the Wimbledon 2007 tournaments in the second round.

We should give Sania more time for the recovery from the injuries which she received in the Dubai Open Tournament.She has not yet reached to the optimum level of fitness yet, but the performance of Sania taking into account the level of her injuries is commendable.

However the Wimbledon 07 is over for Sania and she is now gearing up for the Rogers Cup of Canada starting on 11.08.2007. This tournament would be played on the hard surface and many great players like Justine Henin,Maria Sharapova and jelena JankoviK etc are taking part.

We hope Sania would be physically fit as compared to the present time and also we would like to wish her lots and lots of luck and best wishes if you permit me to do so….
