Sania finishes year ranked 66th

New Delhi, Nov 13: Sania Mirza has moved three places to end what has been a below-par year for her as 66th ranked on the WTA charts.

The Indian tennis icon, who had begun the year with a career-best rank of 31, could not add any feathers to her hat in the year gone by apart from a couples of surprises which included a victory against former world number one Martina Hingis.

Her slump was also evident from the fact that her rating points dropped to 382, way below her last year's count.

Sania is currently preparing for the Asian Hopman Cup mixed team championship to be held in her home town of Hyderabad from November 22.

In the doubles, the Indian finished with a career-best ranking of 24 with 1070 points.

Among other Indians in the WTA singles chart, US-based Shikha Uberoi finished 206th, followed by Ankita Bhambri (42.50) at 418.
