Game, Set, match....Ms Mirza

Who would have ever imagined that a tennis player from India, female at that, would generate so much interest that her voice would be heard over Radio promoting jewellery, and more so, would have her face on hoardings promoting a Petroleum Company. Just maybe 2 years back, people, specially the advertising gurus would have laughed outright on your face if you dared to suggest so. But now, Sania Mirza is doing exactly just that. And it's about time that we Indians begin to look for role models away from the cricket field.

Sania Mirza is the new face of young female go-getters, who know what they want, and go all out in making their dreams come true. True, Sania has achieved nothing much when compared to other tennis greats, prompting snide remarks from people. But at least she's done something which no Indian woman has done before ie won a WTA event. Hats off to you, Ms. Mirza.
