Hyderabad: Having won five doubles titles in the 2013 season, Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza on Tuesday termed the year as one of the best of her career and hoped to win more Grand Slams and be world No. 1 in doubles in the years to come.
“People win one tournament and say they had a good year. So, I am very happy. One of the main targets is to try and win a Slam. I am going to try and win more Slams and try and win a women’s Grand Slam as well. That’s what we really play for. May be, that’s the only target I can set,” she told reporters at her tennis academy on the outskirts of the city.
Sania’s latest triumph came in the China Open where she teamed up with Cara Black in women’s doubles.
“I always used to say when I was playing, whenever I used to give myself a target, I used to get injured. So, I stopped giving myself a target. Because, I would achieve it and I would get hurt. Sometimes, I think I push my body too much,” she said.
She said, like any other sportsperson, she hopes to be world No. 1 in the near future.
“God willing, one day, the goal is to try and be No. 1 in the world. That is what we are playing for. I hope I will be able to do that in the near future,” she said. (PTI)
