"I am not playing in Bangalore Open. I have been advised by my manager not to play [there] because a lot has been happening in the past few months," Sania told reporters in Hyderabad on Monday.
"Everytime I have played in India there has been some kind of problem. So we just thought it was better not to play this time," she added.
