Re: Sania Mirza's place

So Sania may not be totally finished with singles then?

Does anyone know if Sania and Mahesh will defend their French Open title together? I just wrote an article pleading them to pair up again! http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/05/0...EGsd8q.twitter

Re: Sania Mirza's place

Sania Mirza Made to the Semifinals of US Open With Some upset victories of YEC Contenders
Mirza/Zheng is a good team to watch, They complimented each other very well, Unfortunately they ran into the hot team of barty/delecqua who made 3 finals in the major this year
Here are the results of Mirza/Zheng

Round 1 Annika Beck (GER) / Monica Puig (PUR) 6-2 6-2
Round 2 Katalin Marosi (HUN) / Megan Moulton-Levy (USA) 105 6-3 7-5
R16 [6] Anna-Lena Groenefeld (GER) / Kveta Peschke (CZE) 6-2 6-3
Q [4] Su-Wei Hsieh (TPE) / Shuai Peng (CHN) 16 6-4 7-6 S
Loss [8] Ashleigh Barty (AUS) / Casey Dellacqua (AUS) 2-6 2-6

2-6 2-6 does not indicate the closeness of the match , Sania/Zheng had so many chances to win both the Sets.
Still a Great 2 weeks for her.
Next Tournament :
WTA Guangzhou

Re: Sania Mirza's place

"It was easier playing on court because of our friendship off it"

India Today 38th Anniversary special: In conversation with Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza

In the high-profile yet often fractured world of Indian tennis, the relationships of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes, Bhupathi and Sania Mirza, and Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna have been much talked about. But the friendship between Sania, 27, and Rohan, 33, has remained under the radar. A 14-year-old Sania first met a 20-year-old up-and-coming Rohan in 2000 when they combined to win a mixed doubles in the National Championship. Their lives and careers have since taken them on different paths but the friendship endures. In a conversation moderated by Principal Correspondent, Aaj Tak, Shivani Gupta, the two talk about their early days and why they haven't played together more often.

IT What were your first impressions of each other?

Rohan Bopanna (RB)
I remember the forehand, which was formidable and grew to become her big weapon. Those were the days when we still had mixed doubles in the Nationals. In the years since, we got to know each other better. Our relationship grew as we played our respective tours. It was easier playing on court because of our friendship off it.

Sania Mirza (SM) Ours has become a lasting friendship. When we first met, he was an up-and-coming player. Everyone was watching out for him and hoping he would take over from Leander and Mahesh. He made me feel comfortable despite our age difference. By the time we played the Hopman Cup, we had already become very good friends. We are both easy-going. OK, I'm high maintenance and he's extremely easy-going (Both laugh). That works well.

IT The elite group of Indian players often sees friction and a clash of egos. Your friendship seems to have escaped that completely.

RB There's no point having ego clashes. We are all playing the same sport. We are going to see each other a lot. It's just easier on everybody when we get along.

IT Sania, what was it like for you to break into what has been a boys' club?

SM What worked in my favour was that I was very young. I played with Rohan when I was 14, Leander when I was 15. I knew Mahesh from much earlier. So I have been hanging out with them since I was very young. They were older. Now it doesn't feel like that but at that time, our age groups were different. It was only a few years later that I understood how male-dominated our sport was. When on tour, I'm one of the guys. I am often the only woman when we go out for dinner. To have that kind of bond is important because it gets lonely on the tour.

IT Does having someone from your country along on a tour help?

RB Definitely. It's tough out there. To have someone familiar around is a big comfort. You know you always have someone who will come for Indian food. Sania has been part of the boys' group. We get a lot of information about WTA tour from her (Both laugh).

SM I can tell you boys gossip much more than girls (Laughs).

RB I don't, but maybe others.

IT So what is the key information you give them, Sania?

RB (Interrupts) When I'm picking partners, I ask her if the person is sane.

IT Does information flow the other way too?


SM Like I said, guys gossip a lot. I get so much inside news about men's locker room.

RB She knows more than I do!

IT You won your first 13 matches and reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2011 in only your second Grand Slam together. Why didn't you play with each other more often?


SM One of the main reasons has been the Olympics. It has messed up a lot of things, especially in terms of partnerships. After that Wimbledon performance, I decided to play with Mahesh because we were targeting to play together in London Olympics. That is where friendship helps; we understood each other's decisions and found different partners. It was just wrong timing that we didn't play together again. But we'll certainly play again.

IT Did the selection row ahead of the London Olympics affect your relationship?

RB I don't want anyone to go through what we went through. It was one of the toughest periods for us. But we never had issues. We were communicating regularly about what was being said.

SM There was never any conflict between us. In the beginning of the row, I didn't say anything because it was between the boys. Rohan never mentioned me. But when my name was dragged into the debate, I had to speak up. It affected my relationship with Mahesh for a brief period but we soon got back to normal.

IT So much went down. There was so much bad blood.

RB As a person if you can understand and move on, even the bad blood can be left behind. At the end of the day, we are a handful of players playing for the country. We needed to be role models.



IT Would you say the two of you sometimes got trapped in the conflict between Bhupathi and Paes?


RB I did during the selection row; sometimes before that too. Thankfully, I had good advisers who told me how to go about it. But seeing them having problems while growing up perhaps helped us because we learnt how to deal with it (Sania nods in agreement).

IT You are both part of the Indian Tennis Players Association that came into being after another tough period for Indian tennis-the Davis Cup revolt. What's the importance of itpa?

SM It is a non-profit organisation. We just want to help young players as well as those who have been forgotten. We need to have a system in place. We want to be able to tell others what goes into making a top-level player. I wish we had something like this when we were young. We didn't know whom to go to. It is one of the better things to have happened in Indian tennis in a long time.

IT Do you feel the responsibility of being a senior now?

RB Just being here in Hyderabad at this first-of-its-kind camp started by itpa, six-seven of us practising together is unique. Young players motivate me and vice versa. We share experiences. Training together builds camaraderie.

IT So when can we see you play together again?


SM As of now, we are committed to playing with other partners at the Australian Open. If we win with others, we might not get the chance. But we could well play the French Open or Wimbledon together. It's all about what the situation would be then.

IT In the meantime, what's the one thing you are looking forward to doing together?

RB I'm still waiting to go to Sania's home and have some wonderful home-cooked food. Her mother is a great cook.

SM In my defence, my mother's in Delhi (Laughs). But we shall definitely go for dinner.

RB Then I will have to come again to Hyderabad for her mother's food.
