The happy & excited Sania quote : “I am really thrilled to win a title again. I feel good now and am a lot more confident. I was desperate for this victory. I needed one major title to get back my rhythm and beating a player who was world No. 1 just two months back is very satisfying. It will put me back on track and this major victory ahead of Olympics will help me a lot.”
