On Friday, in the quarterfinals of mixed doubles tennis Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna stood against Britain’s Andy Murray and Heather Watson.And as expected, the moment was very proud for Indians when Sania Mirza finished the game in style with a smash in third half.
India subdued Britain with 6-4, yes 6-4 in just 67 minutes. Bopanna was the attacker while Sania defended very well from the back of the court.And with the glittering victory at Rio Olympics quarterfinals, the duo made their way to semifinals.Now if they win semi-finals as well, they would be bringing locals to our nation with the silver medal. And in case if they don’t win semi-finals then too, the bronze medal is ours.
So far in the history of India, we won only one medal in tennis in Olympic by Leander Paes in 1996 on the courts of Atlanta Games.We congratulate both the talented tennis players on reaching semifinals at Rio Olympics. And we also wish them luck to win semi-finals.
