George W. Bush: 'I visited Hyderabad, the city of Sania Mirza'

'I visited Hyderabad, the city of Sania Mirza'

NEW DELHI: The burgeoning fan list of Sania Mirza has a new entry---US President George W. Bush.

He confessed his admiration towards the rising Indian tennis star to a gathering of the cream of Indian society.

‘‘I visited Hyderabad, the city of Sania Mirza,’’ said Bush inviting loud cheers from the audience at the historic Purana Qila.

Just back from a daylong visit to the high-tech southern city, Bush found Mirza the symbol of a modern India, which was the focus of his half-an-hour address.

He also paid tributes to Indian-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla who was killed when space shuttle Columbia crashed five years ago.

‘‘I know India will always be proud of Kalpana Chawla,’’ he said.

Mirza, who is 34 in world ranking, was on the cover of the American Time magazine last year.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

I can't believe GWB knows about Sania Mirza.

What does this mean for Sania? Will she become the most controversial tennis player in history? The Monica Lewinsky of the tennis world?

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza
Pas de Quatre:
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia

He was probably informed about Sania while he was in Hyderabad...

George W. is kissing up to her.They hate him, and he's trying to cash in on her insane popularity

I guess she's a little more politically correct than Pete Bodo would have you believe

I cannot imagine what India will do when Sania whens a GS. Even GB is using her popularity.

Good Luck

His brother (Florida Gov.) Jeb, an avid tennis player and fan, could well have told him about her.
