MUMBAI, INDIA ( — Sania Mirza, who recently won an ITF tournament in Dubai to end the year on a high, on Tuesday expressed confidence of a good show in the Australian Open early next year.

The 24-year-old, who is now ranked 164th in the world, beat Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 4-6, 6-3, 6-0 in the USD 75,000 Al Habtoor Tennis Challenge final on Sunday in Dubai.

She denied that it was a conscious attempt to play ITF tournament in between WTA tournaments. Sania said,

It’s really satisfying. It’s like a dream come true considering the way I started the season with an injury. In the last six months I have been playing consistent tennis. And going into a Grand Slam with a title and beating a top 40 player gives you a lot of confidence.
