Even the dubs well done.

yeah well done...The loss to pin was just inexplicable..Other than that she hasnt had any too unexpected losses though..But hopefully soon she ll start to win a lot of these tight matches against top players...

i think sania plays doubles better than singles so far this year!

Sania didn't know how to handle the moonballs. Her loss to Pin is not that shocking. Hantuchova did the same thing in the third set of their match.

I don't see the point in pairing with Ivanovic. Hawt doubles pair,great for marketing, but not practical. Both of them will be blasting forehands everywhere. Neither are great movers, and neither are experienced enough at the net.

Oh,i have to say that i really hate moonballs,they just suck.

i think sania should do something to get used to moonballs...

Mightymirza
Mar 23rd, 2006, 02:19 PM
I hate moonballs too..Yeah sania should do something about it..but what?? I myself just go wild when opponent start moonballing..I like ball flat and hard..Just no idea how to handle loopy high balls..Have difficult to time them well.

Well how bout fact that maybe boht of them dint get anyone else to pair with??Sania said clearly that shes had problems finding doubles partners... Plus maybe these 2 girls get along together...Anyways main idea for sania is trying new things and get practice as well as having fun on court..If she thinks she can do all this with ivanovic..I dont see why she shudnt pair up with her..You never know you see..But yeah doesnt look like they can win much together..But its an awesome pair..

actually,it really surprised me to see sania and ana play doubles together.

but,i am glad to see they play together!

btw,why she has a problem finding a double partner???

georgekuo1017

maybe sania can also try to play some moonballs,just to change the pace and be more patient...

I dunno..But she said it in an article published 2 weeks back that she was really honored that sugiyama chose to play with her..And even though her main focus is on sinles,the doubles success is special for her coz many times she had difficulties finding good doubles partners...It was a nice article...

And yeah she should try to give some moonballs...as easy it sounds its quite hard i think.To give high loopy spinning balls deep into the court..If they r short opponent can be all over you..Its also imp to keep them deep inside the court..Hopefully sania can learn to change pace sometimes too...

Singles is my first preference: Sania

Sania Mirza/ PMG/Globosport

Indian Wells, California, is one of the prettiest resorts in the world and the tennis courts are located in what is probably one of the most picturesque places that I have had the good fortune to visit. This is the first time I will be playing out here and the atmosphere is electric.

My elbow injury has not healed entirely though it is better. Of course, the obvious solution would be to rest it for some more time but it doesnít quite work that way on the professional tennis circuit. Virtually, every player in the top 100 is struggling with some injury or the other and the golden rule is to take a break only if the injury threatens to get worse by continuing to play.

The problem stems from the fact that in order to compete at the highest level today, one has to push oneself to the very limit and this punishment to the body obviously results in injuries. The problems assume greater magnitude for players like me who come from a background, where we have had no professional advice from world class physical trainers during our formative years. Professional tennis is a tough sport and one is expected to bear the pains and aches, which are a part and parcel of a tennis playerís life.

By not playing in Doha, where I was in the main draw last week, Iíve already lost the opportunity to defend my last yearís ranking points, which resulted in a drop in my singles ranking for this week.

I need to earn a few points in the coming few weeks to get back into the top 35 in singles and having reached my best ever rank of 64 in doubles, I also have the opportunity to break into the top 50 of the world in doubles with a couple of good performances. Rest is not really at the top of my list of priorities though I will be monitoring the pain in my elbow and wrist very closely under the supervision of the physiotherapist.

Of course, singles is my priority for sure but the rise in my doubles ranking gives me a special thrill for some very personal reasons. It has been a long grind in doubles right from the junior days, when no decent player wanted to play with me for the simple reason that Indian women had no history of being great doubles players. It was a twist of fate that helped me combine with Alysa Kleybanova to lift the girls doubles title in Wimbledon 2003.

We decided to play together at the very last moment because neither of us could find anyone else to play with and miraculously we won the most prestigious title in the world.

Even on the professional circuit, I have never had any regular doubles partner and it has not been easy to work my way up in the hierarchy of doubles specialists of the world.

Ai Sugiyama, my doubles partner for the week is one of the leading doubles specialists on the circuit and one who is highly respected.

The fact that she agreed to play with me in this major tournament is an honour for me and though we are unseeded, Iím looking forward to learning a lot from this wily exponent of the doubles game.

I guess this was article i was talking abt..

hey, why not make a new thread for Articles and interviews of Sania rather than posting them randomly in other threads
what say?

its worrying that her performance is going down instead of improving. may it is coz of injuries but i am sure she will come back strong.
