It came as a surprise, wasn't expecting: Sania Mirza on winning Doubles title
New Delhi : Sania Mirza made a dream comeback to the professional tennis with a victory of the Hobart International Doubles title, talking about her feelings, Sania said that she was not expecting it.
Having last played in 2018, Sania Mirza returned on the ground almost after a gap of two-long years. Her pregnancy kept her away from the field and she returned like a pro to the game.
"It’s something I did not expect totally, so to say, but I am excited to be able to do this in my first tournament on comeback," Mirza told PTI.
"I honestly thought I would be a bit more rustier than I was. I was pleasantly surprised that I was not as rusty as I thought. But there are things I can improve upon and that is what make a champion. You always want to get better in what you are doing, no matter how well you do."
Sania Mirza won the title with Nadiia Kichenok and defeated the second-seed Chinese team of Shaui Peng and Shuai Zhang 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and 21 minutes.
"There is no key, I wish I knew, there was one key to winning. I just enjoyed my game. You have to work hard, play your game. I was playing with a new partner, new year after two-and-a-half years. There was no pressure and no expectations," Mirza added.
"The first match was the only one when I felt a bit nervous because I did not know how my body will react and how I would play. That match was difficult but it set the tone and momentum. I was happy to come though that one and after that things kept getting better and better."
