It’s no mystery that 2021 has been a turbulent year with sporting events restarting after the pandemic, slowly but steadily. Along with other sports, tennis has also suffered a severe setback due to the pandemic, but with 2021 a new state of normalcy was reached as tournaments began to take place again.

For Indian tennis stars as well, it has been a decent year that has shown promise and promise for the future. The Tokyo Olympics were a highlight of the year and India included Sania Mirza, Ankita Raina and Sumit Nagal in the quadrennial multisport extravaganza.

Sumit Nagal made waves when he reached the quarter-finals of the ATP 250 Argentina Open, while the Ankita Raina-Kamilla Rakhimova pair won the Phillip Island Trophy WTA 250 and Sania Mirza-Christina McHale became a finalist in the Cleveland WTA 250 forward Sania Mirza teamed up with China’s Zhang Shuai to win the Ostrava Open WTA 500.

Apart from them, Ramkumar Ramanathan also clinched his first Challenger title in Bahrain, while also putting in good performances in doubles. Meanwhile, Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov also had decent 2021 outings in men’s doubles.
