New Delhi: Sania Mirza's Wimbledon campaign begins later on Tuesday with a first round clash against Catalina Castano of Colombia.

Sania Mirza's WTA ranking improved by one rung as she climbed to the 32nd spot in the latest list.

Sania, however, remained steady at 19th in the doubles' list with 1745 points.

The Hyderabadi girl, who is recovering from a wrist injury, has been seeded 32nd at the Wimbledon and handed an easy opening round match.

While Bhupathi hung on to the 13th position with 2940 points, Paes continued to be 23rd with 2050 points.
