A country, where billions are crazy about a bat and ball game called cricket and equally obsessed with bollywood babes, would rarely get lucky to find any hot and sexy babe in sports.

Sports have been always dominated by cricket in India and unfortunately it is gentlemen’s game so no ladies luck there.

As far as my memory goes Sania Mirza is the only girl making sensation in tennis. Prior to her Indian tennis has been more of men’s game overshadowed by Ramesh Krishnan et al in seventies who used to show up in Davis Cup and grand slam double matches and lately by Leander Paes, who got some success and Mahesh Bhupati who is quite often seen in doubles.

Sania was born in Mumbai in 1986 and got trained in Hyderabad. She was trained by her sports journalist father. She came to limelight after winning Wimbledon 2003 girl’s double title with Russian Alisa Kleybanova.

She went professional in 2003 and became the first and only Indian woman to reach the 4th round of a Grand Slam tournament in 2005 US Open.

” My mother took me to a coach, who initially refused to coach me because I was too small,” said Mirza. “After a month, he called my parents to say he had never seen a player that good at such a young age.” [From WTATour interview]

Her career peak was In 2005 when she reached the 3rd round of Australian Open where she lost to Serena Williams.

She also received India’s highest honour in sports, Arjun Award, in 2004.

Sania is pretty, tall (5′ 7″) and has a huge fan base in Indian and abroad among desi community. Lately she has been linked with Bollywood which was bound to happen and rumours are that she is also planning to make her appearance in bollywood movies.

Sania has just turned 23 on 15th November and her tennis career seems to decline however she can be successful in bollywood provided she is willing to learn how to do ek do teen dance….
