Mirza to boycott Bangalore tournament
I have written in detail about the problems Sania Mirza has in her home country. The situation gets worse every month, and Mirza has decided to boycott the Bangalore Open and, she says, all tournaments in India. Mahesh Bhupathi, Mirza's manager and doubles partner, advised her to skip the Bangalore Open, which begins on March 3. The tournament has been upgraded to a Tier II level.
