After her stupendous success in the junior circuit of Wimbledon last year, India's teen tennis sensation Sania Mirza is now making a determined bid to enter the senior league and go for the senior doubles title in the prestigious tournament.
"This time around I may not play the junior doubles but am seriously thinking of entering the fray in the seniors doubles section", Sania told a news agency in Hyderabad today.
Sania, who is currently ranked 189, is looking for a good partner in the women's doubles section of this year's Wimbledon slated to be held in June.
Though she has an "outside chance" to get into the main draw of women doubles, the 17-year-old is hoping that she will find a partner.
"Earlier, I thought of playing the doubles in junior circuit for one last time but have almost given up the idea now," she said, adding that her focus will be on seniors though singles is ruled out at this stage.
A combined ranking of 235 is needed to play the senior doubles at Wimbledon and Sania, with a ranking of 189, has to pair with a player with a ranking of 46 which may make the task of the 12th standard Hyderabad girl a little difficult.
