|Biographical detail : ||India’s tennis star.
She is the first female Indian tennis player to be ranked in the world’s top 40; indeed, she is the first significant female athlete of any kind, in India. Sania has the discipline, the tenacity, the flamboyance and, above all, the talent to go much higher in the ranking and, in so doing, inspire a whole new generation of Indian girls to express their hopes and ambitions through sport.
Hyderabad born Sania Mirza has won the hearts and minds of a multitude of Indians. All this means that she is in ceaseless demand – for interviews, billboard advertising, endorsements and television appearances. Now Sania, the star, is something of a youth icon in India – with many Indian teens coveting – and copying – her nerdy black-rimmed glasses and nose ring.
