Yuvraj Comes to the Rescue of Sania Mirza


Hong Kong, Jan 6:
 Sania Mirza is on the comeback trail after a doctor suggested by cricketer Yuvraj Singh helped heal the right wrist injury that cut her season short last year.

The 22-year-old Mirza, pulled out of the first-round of the Beijing Olympics in August and missed the rest of the season because of the injury. Her ranking dropped to No. 100.

She said she wasn't sure what was wrong with her wrist after returning to India from the Olympics, until Singh called with the recommendation.

``I went to see the doctor and after about five days, my pain in my wrist, I was not able to hold a spoon properly, it had suddenly gone. I had complete range of movement back and everything. About two weeks later, I was playing tennis again,'' Mirza said on Monday, adding that her wrist has felt healthy for the past several months.

She said the doctor practiced Korean-style physical therapy. Mirza was speaking ahead of the January 7-10 team-format exhibition tournament in Hong Kong, which also includes No. 1 Jelena Jankovic, seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, Vera Zvonareva, Anna Chakvetadze, Agnes Szavay and Zheng Jie.
