New Delhi: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza on Monday broke into the doubles top-10 for the first time in her career as she gained a place after the US Open, where she made the third round along with Russian partner Elena Vesnina.
Sania is now fourth Indian player from the current lot to feature in the doubles top-10. Veteran stars Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi and ever-improving Rohan Bopanna figure in the top-10 in the ATP doubles ranking chart.
Sania won three doubles title in the current calender to take the overall number to 12 trophies. She triumphed at Indian Wells and Charleston with Vesnina and at College Park with Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova.
