Indian tennis star Sania Mirza impressed by Ankita Raina's form at Fed Cup

New Delhi: Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza, who has been away from the game for a couple of months owing to a right knee injury, said that her immediate goal is to be healthy so that she can get back on the court.

"I am not pain-free but I am not in pain all the time. It's called a Jumper's Knee. I have a growth on my knee as well. So, it is something that is a slow process. I need to wait it out and rest it out. For an injury like this, it has only been three and a half months, it will probably take a couple of months. I wish I had a timeline on it. My immediate goal is to try and be healthy; to try to get back on the court," Mirza told ANI at an event here.





The 31-year-old also said that post-retirement she would want to contribute to the game of tennis and stay involved.

"Most definitely. I just don't know in what way. I have my own academy, so that will definitely be one way to stay involved," she said.

Talking about the future of Indian tennis, Mirza said that the country has exceptional talent to look forward to.

"There is Ankita Raina who had a couple of good wins at Fed Cup. There is Prarthana Thombare who plays at my academy in Hyderabad. There is Karman Kaur Thandi and she is really good. These are the girls that you are looking at in the future," Mirza added.

She also wished the Indian contingent for the Commonwealth Games, which will be held in Gold Coast, Australia from April 4 to 15.

"We have done really well at Commonwealth Games. We always come back with a lot of medals and I would like to wish them all the best. I hope that they come back with more than they did last time," Mirza concluded.
