Sania Murza has booked her place in the last eight


There were no shocks in Sunday round of 16 matches in the women’s tennis singles, as the seven seeded players still left in the tournament all booked their place in the quarterfinals. Top seed Li Na of China brushed aside Sandy Gumulya of Indonesia 6–1, 6–3. In the last eight, she will meet defending Asian Games champion and no 8 seed Iroda Tulyaganova of Uzbekistan, who beat Czarina Mae Arevalo (Philippines) 6–1, 6–1.

After her victory Nan said: "I played my best tennis, because I didn't know much about my opponent. I've never played her before. Although I did not have to play as hard as I did, I did not want to drop my guard, especially after what happened in the team event where I lost my first match. I cried all day after that."

Chinese team mate Zheng Jie, seeded second, also had an easy passage, over coming Shikha Uberoi. The Indian player retired during the first set when 4–0 adrift. In the quarterfinals, Zhang will meet Chan Yung Jan. The 17 year-old Chinese Taipei player, who shared in team gold earlier this week, beat Vietnam’s Viet Ha Ngo 6–1, 6–1.

The closest tie of the round was between Tamarine Tanasugarn (Thailand) and Denise Dy (Philippines). The fifth-seeded Thai player emerged triumphant 6–4, 7–5 and afterwards said, "I didn't start well and she played very well in the end. I really had to concentrate and focus to come back into my game. I was a little down today. It was my first match, I had to wake up early and I was feeling tense." Dy said, "I had my chances in both sets at 5-4. It was really close. Her serve was good in the last games. I just couldn't hold my serve."

India’s fourth-seeded Sania Mirza also progressed, beating Korea’s Yoo Mi 6–1, 6–4. In the last eight, she will play Suchanun Viratprasert (Thailand) who beat Po Kuen Lam (Hong Kong, China) 6–2, 6–1. Afterward her win, Mirza said, "I was playing good, but she got some points, and I started to feel the pressure, and I don't know why that happened. I was hitting the ball so good, and I was playing good, and the crowd was motivating me, so that's why I won the match.

“Also, I have to think about the singles, and it is very tiring to play more than two matches each day, and I have to play three today." Mirza is also due to play a round of 16 women’s doubles match and a mixed doubles quarterfinal on Sunday 10 December. The quarterfinals of the women’s singles tennis will take place on Monday 11 December at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.

Where did you hear that.:confused: .

Heavy workload for sania.
Throw away the doubles Sania and concentrate in Singles and if Mixed doubles. Shikha retired from her singles match due to exhausion. It is unlikely that she will play in doubles.
