Sania confident of doing well in Australian Open

NEW DELHI: Sania Mirza, who recently won an ITF tournament in Dubai to end the year on a high, Tuesday expressed confidence of a good show in the Australian Open early next year.

The 24-year-old, who is now ranked 164th in the world, beat Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 4-6 6-3 6-0 in the USD 75,000 Al Habtoor Tennis Challenge final on Sunday in Dubai.

“It’s really satisfying. It’s like a dream come true considering the way I started the season with an injury. In the last six months I have been playing consistent tennis. And going into a Grand Slam with a title and beating a top 40 player gives you a lot of confidence,” Sania told PTI.

She denied that it was a conscious attempt to play ITF tournament in between WTA tournaments.

“Now ITF are not considered lower tournaments.
