Bangalore: In a significant development, Sania Mirza has agreed to play in the upcoming Asian Games, two days after AITA announced that they would allow top players to miss the Incheon event, keeping in mind their requirements on the professional circuit.

Sania's decision means that the Hyderabadi has put on line 900 ranking points, which she had to defend on the tour during the period of the Asian games, to be held from September 20-30.

Sania will miss the Wuhan WTA event which has 900 points on offer. She though will play in Tokyo, where she is defending champion but now points in that tournament have been reduced to 475 from 900.
