Sania loses in Asiad finals


Mathew Varghese

India’s hopes of winning three golds in tennis today were quickly dashed as Sania Mirza lost to China’s Zheng Zie in the women’s singles final. Sania, seeded 4, was unable to overcome her second seeded opponent, and lost 4-6 6-1 1-6. This loss comes as a disappointment following Sania’s impressive win over the top seeded Chinese Li Na in the semis yesterday.

Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi are currently playing the men’s doubles final against the twins from Thailand – Sanchai and Sonchat Ratiwatana. The game is evenly poised, with the score reading 4-4 in the first set. Later in the day, Sania will be in action along with Paes in the finals of the mixed doubles event. Hope India wins two golds in tennis.
