Sania Mirza refused to make predictions

Sania Mirza on Friday refused to make predictions on how many medals country’s tennis players will win at the upcoming London Olympic Games. She promised that they will give their best shot.

"I think it`s unfair to put a number (on medals). As it is, all of us are under pressure going to the London Olympics. We can`t promise a medal but will give our hundred per cent," said Sania, who would be taking part in the women`s doubles with Rushmi Chakravarti and mixed doubles with Leander Paes in the Games, commencing July 27.

Sania was one of the panel speakers at a news channel’s campaign along with fellow tennis stalwart Mahesh Bhupathi, Union Sports Minister Ajay Maken, former national football skipper Bhaichung Bhutia and cricket star Virender Sehwag.

Asked about India`s chances in the Games, Maken said it is not appropriate for him to predict the country`s medal haul in the quadrennial sports spectacle.

"I would not like to say anything on this because it would be unfair as already we have qualified in large numbers. Last time around 50 people had qualified (for Beijing in 2008), and this time 81 have qualified," he observed.
