Sania Princess of Hyderabad

Egged on by her home crowd, Sania battled past the pain barrier to beat Alyona Bondarenko 6-4 5-7 6-3, becoming the first Indian woman to win a WTA tour title. Hampered by injuries, suffering bouts of nervousness, she swung from erratic play to brilliance. But eventually, her booming groundstrokes carried the day. The tricolour fluttered, the fans cheered, and Sania completed her tryst with destiny.
A top 100 slot now looks well within reach, as does a direct entry at the French Open. And if Sourav is the Prince of Calcutta, then surely Sania must be declared the Princess of Hyderabad

Whether it's serving aces or serving up the news, she does both with panache. Teen sensation Sania Mirza is on a record-breaking roll. On January 29, given a 'wild card entry' as the first Guest Editor of The Sunday Times of India, the 18-year-old youth icon made a profound impression with her rapid-fire reactions and youthful exuberance. There was no pussyfooting; she knew her mind and went for her shots. A fortnight later, she displayed the same qualities and made history yet again — while holding court at a very different venue.
