Tennis-India's Mirza to undergo wrist surgery

NEW DELHI, April 10 (Reuters) - India’s Sania Mirza will undergo wrist surgery later on Thursday, her representatives said.

The world number 31 has struggled with the problem for over a year and will undergo arthroscopy in Miami, they said in a statement.

Mirza, the only Indian player to win a WTA tour event, is expected to be out of action for a month.

The Asia number one has struggled with a series of injuries and was sidelined for two months following knee surgery in March 2007.
