Sania wants AITA to take call on her Asiad participation after stars pull out

Sania yesterday returned to the country after lifting the US Open mixed doubles title on Friday and was quizzed about the Asian Games dilemma after pullouts by Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna.
"There are few problems obviously in Asian Games because it is clashing with two other biggest tournaments in Asia, Beijing and Tokyo. I have lot of points to defend in the same two weeks.
So, it is a very difficult situation," Sania told reporters. "But I leave it to the Federation to try and take this decision. Because it is very difficult for me to take this decision right now," she said.
