Sania Mirza ranked career-best fifth in WTA doubles rankings
Sania Mirza and her Zimbabwean doubles partner Cara Black achieved a career-best rank of number five in the world.
Sania Mirza, the Indian tennis ace, along with her Zimbabwean doubles partner Cara Black on 7 July 2014 were ranked career-best fifth in the latest WTA Doubles rankings.
This feat was achieved by the duo after displaying some consistent results on their tour to just concluded Wimbledon championships. Their appearance in the second round fetched them crucial 130 ranking points which was enough to push them under top-5.
Sania, who became a professional tennis player in 2003, entered the top-five chart for the first time in her career.
On the other hand in the ATP rankings, Somdev Devvarman was dropped by 10 places to 135 due to his poor performance. In the doubles Leander Paes remained unchanged at number 13. Rohan Bopanna was dropped three places to sit on the edge of top-20.
