  1. Sania Mirza perhaps the first Indian woman inspiration in Tennis, who have walked a long way and had carved out a niche for herself.

    But other than Tennis, one more factor Sania must boost about herself is her sense of youngistan fashion.She gives a stunning ramp walk in an Indian wear well accessorised.

    Anyone can have teh look she carries.What one needs a mini makeover.

  2. Nice post digital, Sania sure is in her own league when it comes to female athletes from India. i would add PT Usha ofcourse and also Anju B George , Malleshwari and Kujarani alongwith them though none were as glamourous as Sania. But thats not the tennis stars fault was it!!
    Sania played the Vancouver Open tournament lats year - was great seeing her from the stands. I am guessing she ll play again this year and am looking forward to seeing her. i will be following her live on my blog if anyone is interested. Not to mention there might be some other Indian tennis players that i will follow and hopefully interview. Cheers.
