I am not focusing on Olympics right now; it is in back of my mind: Sania Mirza
New Delhi : Tennis star Sania Mirza made her dream comeback in the game by winning her 42nd Doubles title, most by any active tennis player in the world. While, she is enjoying her successful comeback, the 33-year-old has been devoid of an Olympic medal.
In Tokyo, she might play her last Olympics and interestingly it will be her last chance to get a medal in the tournament. But, she has admitted that 'definitely' Olympics is in her mind but she is not losing her sleep for it.
"The Olympics is something that’s in the back of my mind. It’s not something that I’m focusing on right now, but it is something I look forward to," Sania told Times of India.
"I’m already proud of myself for having put myself in this position to compete again at the highest level, anything that happens after this is a bonus. I really appreciate this a lot. Playing tennis was far from my mind, still the Olympics is not something as tennis players we can focus on. I would be proud of myself if I put myself in a position to compete there again for a fourth time, to put myself in a position to win that only medal that is missing from my cabinet.
"It would be awesome if it happened, but if it doesn’t happen, I’m not going to kill myself."
Sania Mirza recently returned on the field after her long break of 27 months. Her pregnancy kept her away from the field and she returned like a pro to the game.
