New Delhi: The semifinal appearance in the women's doubles event at the just concluded Wimbledon championships on Monday catapulted Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina to number two slot in the WTA Race to year-end Championships.
Sania-Elena pair have 4506 points in the list, headed by Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik, who have 6865 points. The top-four pairs compete in the prestigious year-end championship.
"The partnership with Elena has been great in the last four months, specially the Slams. When we started playing together last year at Dubai, and had somebody said that we will be number two after Wimbledon, we would have laughed," Sania said from Dubai.
