TENNIS- India’s top women’s singles player Ankita Raina registered the biggest win of her career on Wednesday when she defeated former US Open champion Samantha Stosur in the first round of Kunping Open.

Raina, an Asian Games bronze medallist, shocked the Australian 7-5 2-6 6-5 at the WTA 125K event. She is next up against Kai-Lin Zhang of China in the second round.

Last year, 26-year-old Ankita became only the third Indian woman tennis player after Sania Mirza and Nirupama Vaidyanathan to breach the top-200 rankings in singles.
