Sania returns to top 100

sports Updated: Feb 16, 2009 12:39 IST

Her sizzling run at the Pattaya Open, where she made the title clash, has propelled Sania Mirza back to the top 100 as she jumped 39 places to be at 87 in the latest WTA rankings issued on Monday.

The semi-final appearance in the doubles competition at the same event also helped Sania gain seven places and she is now 63 in the doubles ranking.

Sania's ranking had plummeted to 126 as she spent almost half the 2008 season out of courts due to a wrist injury.

In the ATP rankings, appearance in the doubles final at the SAP Open in the United States helped Rohan Bopanna gain seven places and he now stands at 78.

However, the same result for Leander Paes at the World Tennis tournament did no help improve his current ranking of seven.

Mahesh Bhupathi, who did not play last week, remained stationary at number five.
