Islamabad, Apr 25 (ANI): Tennis star Sani Mirza admitted that she has given up playing singles following her third surgery in the last five years.
Sania revealed that it was 'impossible to pursue a singles and doubles career' together and preferred focusing on one.
"Tennis, and the surgeries, takes a lot out of you. I realised at the start of the year that, keeping my physical state in mind, it was impossible for me to pursue a singles and doubles career," The Express Tribune quoted Sania, as saying.
She also mentioned that her performance in the doubles improved after giving up singles.
"Ever since I've given up on my singles career, my performance in doubles matches has been really good. I even reached a career-best seventh in the world and that's why I've decided to concentrate solely on doubles tennis," she explained.
Sania declared that she is 'ready to give it her all despite it being a very difficult task', for staying in the top-10 tennis players till the June 11 cut-off date in order to be eligible for the Olympics and considering she is the only Indian female tennis player in the top-300. (ANI)
