India’s tennis ace Sania Mirza has dedicated her US Open women’s doubles title to the people and said that she is excited to win back-to-back Grand Slam titles.
Sania, who along with her Swiss partner Martina Hingis, bagged the US Open title on Sunday, returned home in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Sania said even if she had not won US Open, it wouldn’t have been a disappointment as she had a very good year so far.
She admitted that she didn’t get much time to practice for US Open as she had to come to India to receive Rajiv Khel Ratna award.
Sania said she would now focus on Australian Open and before that will play couple of other tournaments.
She said her father Imran Mirza had a big role in her success as her coach. Imran said her daughter was on top of her career.
Sania’s mother Naseema said it was because of Sania’s hard work and determination that she achieved the success, overcoming all odds. She recalled that in 2010 it looked as if the injury would finish Sania’s career but she sacrificed singles and focused on doubles to bounce back.
