Sania rules out pairing with Pak tennis ace Aisam for doubles
Islamabad, Apr 25 (ANI): Tennis doubles World No. 8 Sania Mirza has said that she is happy playing with Mahesh Bhupathi and refused to take the court with Pakistan's Aisamul Haq Qureshi.
"I'm playing quite well with Bhupathi in Grand Slams. So, I don't think I need to change anything right now. We'll partner each other in Grand Slams, and playing with Aisam right now is not possible," The Express Tribune quoted Sania, as saying.
Sania, who reached her doubles ranking of seventh after partnering Bhupathi, is still a place behind Aisam.
Aisamul, who split up with India's Rohan Bhopana last year, is now playing limited mixed doubles events with partner Andrea Hlavackova from Czech Republic.
Reports claim that the Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) was also keen on bringing Sania on a tennis court in Pakistan during her various tours of the country. However, Sania ruled that out too, citing the complete absence of international tournaments in Pakistan.
"I haven't asked for a huge paycheque in order to feature in charity matches in Pakistan. But as far as competitive matches are concerned, there are no international tournaments taking place in Pakistan for obvious reasons. So, there's no chance I can play there," she claimed.
Sania reportedly ruled out any chances of a visit to the country in the near future, citing a busy schedule, especially with the 2012 Olympics just over three months away. (ANI)
