多哈网球场 郑洁封后
[ 2006-12-14 09:20 ]

2006年多哈亚运会网球比赛单项赛事已经进入第六天的争夺。在昨天的女子单打决赛中,中国选手郑洁以大比分2比1击败印度强手米尔扎,夺得亚运会女子单打冠军,这是中国女网夺取本届亚运会的第一枚金牌。不过,在随后男子双打和混合双打比赛中,中国队不敌印度。印度组合佩斯/布帕蒂成功卫冕亚运会网球男双冠军。

The Indian fans should be content at the Khalifa Tennis Courts in Doha on Wednesday as their hero Leander Paes led a strong charge to take home two titles from the men's and mixed doubles at the Asian Games tennis tournament.

In an earlier final of the women's singles, their sweetheart Sania Mirza lost to Chinese Zheng Jie, but the 20-year-old Indian rallied to join Paes later in claiming the mixed doubles title after playing three finals within eight days.

"I'm very excited, it is emotional to win a gold medal for my country. After playing so much tennis, my work finally got paid," said Mirza, who also led the Indian team to the women's team final on December 6 but finally lost to Chinese Taipei.

Paes also demonstrated his toughness as the doubles veteran partnered Mahesh Bhupathi to survive seven match points in a gripping men's doubles final against Thai twins Sanchai Ratiwatana and Sonchat Ratiwatana to win the gold medal right before the mixed doubles showdown.

"There are so many Indian people here, and I think that helped to push the Indian team along," said mixed doubles silver medal winner Satoshi Iwabuchi from Japan. "I thought that after playing so many matches he (Paes) would be tired, but he didn't seem to be. "

Paes, who played the Asian Games for the first time at the Beijing Games in 1990, became the most successful male tennis player in singles and doubles in the Games' history, belting four gold and two bronze medals.

Laurels should be given to Chinese Zheng Jie too as the 23-year- old shrugged off the effect from the shouting Indian crowd to beat Mirza in a full-set thriller 6-4, 1-6 and 6-1.

"All those voices in the crowd affected me, because I could not calm myself down, so for the first and second sets, I played quite conservatively, I thought I played in a soccer match," said Zheng, who used to play in the India Open in 2005, describing the playing atmosphere as "terrible".

"But in the deciding set, I played more aggressively, and tried to push the pressure from myself to Mirza. I am under pressure but I think I've handled well," added Zheng, capturing three breaks to win the third set at 6-1 and the whole match.
