Incheon: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza feels the five medals that the team has managed to grab at the ongoing Asian Games is a pretty good performance given that the country did not come with the best unit possible for the event. (Sania Assured of Silver in Mixed Doubles)

"It has been a pretty good week. We (she and Prarthana Thombare) got a medal (bronze) in women's doubles which is huge because it's something that we never did. I had to be the leader. It's a young team we came here with, didn't come with the best team possible, especially with the guys. Five medals (including today's) is pretty good," she said ahead of the mixed doubles semifinals with Saket Myneni at the Yeorumul Tennis Centre. (Medal Tally)
