New Delhi : She toppled the world number 25, dished out a tough fight against world number 18 and is moving faster than ever on the courts, yet Sania Mirza -- on a comeback-trail -- does not want to jump the gun in saying that she has got back the touch which once perched her to the top 30.
A matured Sania is treading her path carefully as the first Grand Slam of the year -- Australian Open -- beckons and is not making any tall promises.
Her choice of preferring an exhibition event in Hong Kong to the point-earning WTA Tour event to get back into business after a long injury lay-off also showed her measured approach to her career.
"I'm reasonably happy with my performance so far but it is still going to take me a while before I can win consistently at this level," Sania told PTI from Hobart where she is playing in a WTA Tour event in the run-up to the Australian Open.
"I still have some way to go before I feel I'm playing at my best. It's never easy making a comeback but I am a positive person and feel that if I keep working hard I can get my rhythm back in due course of time," she added.
She beat 25th ranked Hungarian Agnes Szavay and gave a difficult time to her old nemesis Russian Ana Chakvetadze -- currently the world number 18 -- while representing the Asia-Pacific team at World Team Challenge tournament last week.
Asked how the injured wrist has responded since returning to top level action, she said, "So far so good."
