The final hasn't yet been played, right? The other doubles semi-final just got done today, so the final will be on Saturday...

That's a good interview. It seems she has made the decision to not play singles anymore and is at peace with it. Best wishes for continued success to her.

Great job winning the title at Yale!! Congratulations to Sania and Jie! This pair is looking very good going into the US Open. And with our troops firing at each other across the length and breadth of the border, this pairing is bound to make a lot of interesting political headlines if it gets to the QF and beyond!

Weak Draw : Are you kidding me :P
1st Round - They had beaten a pair whom they lost to in Toronto 6-3 1-6 6-10(R2) Toronto
2nd Round-Lucky Draw yes but still manage to scrap through because Sania hit the forehand on the head of jheng in that match, must be very painful for jheng :(
SF-Beaten a pair who ousted Number 1 seeds(Wimbledon champs and Cincinnati Winners) and Sania/Mattek lost to the pair in Australian Open 2013(6-7 3-6)
Final-Beaten Number 2 seeds( 1 player who won toronto and number 6 in the world)
Saniapower: Yes There is a lot of criticism for Sania, Completely Agree with that, But She has achieved a Great Milestone :)
We as a Sania Followers should cherish this rather than discouraging it :)

Having been there for so many years on tour still she has not won a single GS doubles title and will never win. She has only reached one final and that too mainly due to Vesnina's outstanding doubles quality. Most of the doubles players having similar ranking have already won multiple slams and reached numerous finals. The manner in which she lost recently in the semis of the USO, it just exposed her limitations once more as a doubles player. It was so painful to watch, they were totally outplayed and she has no Plan B. Story of a doubles player who only knows how to hit the ball hard. I still think she will do better in singles.

You are going to account for only loss Sania Had in Marvelous Run to US Open Semifinal
They had beaten 6th seeds(One of the seeds that can qualify for YEC),4th Seeds(Wimbledon Champs) and Good teams in their section.
It was a great Run by Sania and Jie , Yes she can play Singles but if her body does not allow it, How can she play?
They lost to a team who has beaten some good teams like Vesnina/Makarova 6-2 6-3 and Huber/Vives 6-4 6-3
Sania/Jie did have great chances to win both the sets :) Its just that if you don't play your best on a particular day, You don't win :(
I have seen all of Sania's Matches , She looked great on both sides :) She is pain free, She is fit, Hope She now finds a steady partner in the next year :)
Please Saniapower acknowledge their run to SF,rather than just accounting for a single loss :)
