Sesil Karatantcheva vs Sania Mirza : Family Circle Cup

High on confidence after returning victorious with the doubles title from the MPS Group Championships in Florida, Indian ace Sania Mirza will start her campaign against Sesil Karatantcheva of Kazakhistan at the Family Circle Cup tennis tournament here.

The 100th ranked Sania has faced Karatantcheva just once in 2004, where she was overpowered by the Kazakh. 

Ironically, that was also a clay-court tournament. 

Reports claimed that if the Indian manages to overcome the World number 133 to avenge her 2004 disappointment, she may have to take on second seed and multiple grand slam title winner Venus Williams of the US in the second round of the one million dollar tournament. 

The clay-court event, which started on April 11, will continue till April 19.
