New Delhi:

Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza has expressed disappointment over her missing this year's French Open -- second Grand Slam of the year -- because of a prolonged wrist injury.

It would be for the first time that the Hyderabadi will not be in action in a Grand Slam event since playing Australian Open in 2005, when made a third round exit.

"I am naturally disappointed at missing the French Open but there are certain things beyond one's control and I hope to be back on the circuit soon," Sania said in a statement.

Ranked 33 in WTA singles chart and 19 in doubles, Sania, out of action since March, had undergone a surgery on April 10 in Florida to repair a capsule tear on her right wrist.

The cast was removed on May 5 and she has been undergoing rehab under her personal physiotherapist Renuka Pinto.

Now the Indian challenge in the Roland Garros this year would be confined to men's doubles with Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi appearing with different partners.
