Double delight for Myskina
Anastasia Myskina won the singles and doubles titles at the Sunfeast Open.

Russian stars to face Uberoi sisters
The Uberoi sisters -- Shikha and Neha entered their maiden doubles final on the WTA Tour while Russian tennis star Anastasia Myskina put herself in line for a double title.

'I wish there was a magic wand'
'Things can't happen overnight. I need to stop, take a couple of months,' Sania Mirza said after her second round defeat.

Sania shocked by Czink
The 34-ranked Indian ace was beaten by the 121st-ranked Hungarian in the second round at the Sunfeast Open.

Sania and the art of time management
The 18-year-old is under the microscope of adulation, be it on court or off it. New demands are being made on her time every day.

Myskina blames fatigue
The Russian attributed fatigue following a busy 2004 for her subdued year in which she has failed to win a single WTA title.

Sania storm blows Namigata
The 34-ranked third seeded Indian ace proved too good for the 283-ranked Japanese in the first round of the Sunfeast Open.

Seeking Sania's autograph
Sania Mirza's appearance -- about two hours before her match against Junri Namigata -- turned out to be a bigger draw than the games on inside the Netaji Indoor stadium.

Shikha advances, Bhambri out
Shikha Uberoi carved out a fluent 6-1, 6-3 victory over Ryoko Fuda of Japan in the first round of the Sunfeast Open.

'Sania will be a one-woman industry soon'
'Leander and me probably started the revolution, and now Sania is taking it to a different level,' says Indian doubles ace Mahesh Bhupathi.
