Ankita won the women’s singles tennis bronze at the Jakarta Asian Games last year. She lost to China’s Zhang Shuai 4-6, 6-7 in the semi-finals. This was his first medal at the Asian Games. Earlier in the 2014 Asian Games, she could make it to the pre-quarterfinals. Ankita is yet to make it to the main draw of any Grand Slam singles or doubles category. His best record has been at Wimbledon 2018 and 2019, the Australian Open this year and the US Open.
Wimbledon in 2018
Ankita made it to the second round of qualifying round in Wimbledon in 2018 and this year. She was successful in reaching the second round of qualifying at the Australian Open this year. If she crosses the second round of qualifying at the US Open this time, it will become her best record. By the way Ankita introduced the game in the match against Yeline Bonavanture, it seems certain to reach the third round of qualifying.
