“Ankita needs to soak it in and enjoy the moment” – Sania Mirza’s advice to Ankita Raina ahead of the latter’s Slam debut

Ankita Raina is set to make her Grand Slam debut in the Women’s Doubles at the Australian Open on Thursday. Ahead of the big day, her Fed Cup doubles partner & idol, Sania Mirza, shared a few words of advice for her during the Sony coverage of the Australian Open on TV –

“Grand Slam debut happens just once in a lifetime. One does not play their first Grand Slam multiple times. Ankita needs to soak it in, enjoy the moment, and give it her best. Hopefully she will end up on the right side, in terms of results, tomorrow”

Ankita will partner Romania’s Mihaela Buzarnescu, who’s a former world number 24 in doubles. They will take on Australian wildcards Belinda Woolcock and Olivia Gadecki at around 8.30 AM IST on Thursday. The match will be telecasted live on Sony Ten 2/HD and on the SonyLIV app
