Sania Mirza, who won her maiden French Open mixed doubles title with Mahesh Bhupathi on Thursday, said an Olympic medal was their next target.
She, however, added that the decision regarding who will play in the Olympics is not in their control.
“The Olympics is something we have all dreamt about as athletes and we want to win a medal there, but a lot of things are not in our control,” said Sania.
Sania said if the same pair was fielded in the London Games, it would try to provide India its second Olympic medal in tennis.
Leander Paes, who is also a strong contender to team up with Sania, had given the country its first Olympic tennis medal, a singles bronze, in the 1996 Atlanta Games.
“If we do get that opportunity, we are going to give whatever we have to get that medal,” said Sania.
Moving on to grass
Mahesh concurred with Sania, saying “for us the train hasn't really stopped. We're off to the grass court season now. She's going to Birmingham; I am going to Queen's Club. It's going to be a long grass court season because the Olympics is on grass as well.
“We're playing well. We're looking forward to playing together and if we get the opportunity to play the Olympics together, hopefully we'll be able to fire like we did this week and contend for a medal,” added Bhupathi.
The Indian tennis star said her second Grand Slam title with Bhupathi was special since it came on her teammate's birthday.
“Every Grand Slam is as special as the other. The first one was very special for its own reasons and this was special as it was on my least favourite surface and came on Mahesh's birthday,” said Sania.
She said that winning the title after a poor start gave her immense satisfaction.
Actress Lara Dutta was on cloud nine after husband Mahesh Bhupathi and Sania clinched the mixed doubles crown.
The 34-year-old tweeted that she was the “proudest, happiest wife” and that Bhupathi is their daughter Saira's hero.
