Tennis ace Sania Mirza, on Saturday, said that she is suffering from a knee injury and would soon take a call on whether she would undergo surgery.
“It was tough year with partners getting injured, but I have a bit of a knee injury now. I have been off for about a month. I have couple of weeks to rest, just trying to get used to, I have to see if I need to have a surgery or not. [I have] a little bit of problem,” Mirza said on the sidelines of the Indian Sports Honours.
She added, “But all in all I still finished close to top-10, so I am happy with the year.”
The 30-year-old, who began the year at number one, finished at number nine. Meanwhile, India’s non-playing Davis Cup captain Mahesh Bhupathi said that it was just a matter of time for Ramkumar Ramanathan to break into the top-100. “Yuki (Bhambri) has been injured, but he will get back. Ram (Ramkumar Ramanathan) has his breakthrough season, next two years are big for him.
He is much younger, so we will give him some time. He is found a good coach and he is comfortable with Emilio Sanchez, so he is doing the right thing , so now it is just the matter of breaking into the top 100,” Bhupathi said.
The 23-year-old Ramanathan is currently ranked 148 in the men’s singles as per the ATP rankings.
