I may have spoke too soon about Sania's preparation for 2009. Sounds like that spiral thing is working:
The Hyderabadi has been hitting the ball for almost a month now at rigorous training sessions, lasting up to two hours.
During the pre-season camp at the Tennis Village here on Thursday, she showed that if anything, she's perhaps hitting the ball harder than before.
Playing under the keen gaze of her father Imran, Sania, considerably leaner and moving a shade a quicker, has regained the full movement of her wrist. She's also able to hold firm when necessary. Both functions had been lost for a good part of the summer when her forehand looked frayed and her tennis pedestrian.
