Sania Mirza was really close to beating Svetlana Kuznetsova but could not do it. In the end it was the Russian who came up with the big answers when the Hyderabadi posed difficult questions. The result was along expected lines but no one could have imagined such a close contest.

At the post-match press meet, Sania was really composed. There is no point in feeling disgraced after putting up such a fight and losing to a far higher ranked player. In a prominent Indian website the headline ran “Sania crashes out of Wimbledon”. This is far from the truth. It was only the expectations that ran high especially because the Indian had beaten the same opponent in Dubai some time ago. As an Indian I only wish for Sania to achieve greater things in the future.
