Youth icon of the year Sania Mirza
On February 12, 2005, Sania Mirza became the first Indian woman to win a WTA singles title defeating Alyona Bondarenko of Ukraine in the Hyderabad Open Finals. Sania Mirza has achieved a lot of fame in a very short time and this can be attributed to her looks and talents and shortage of women sports personalities in India.
Sania Mirza surely needs to perform better to keep up the vibe and popularity that has been created!
Sania Mirza lost to Serena Williams in the 3rd round of the Australian Open.
According to the Womens Tennis Association (WTA) latest charts, Sania has reached 48th position from her earlier 59th position and sixth among Asian players.
Sania lost her third round match against Japan’s Akiko Morigami to crash out of the $1.3 million Acura Classic tennis tournament.
