:worship: :bounce: Great job for the Indian ! Becoming the first Indian Woman to win two rounds at a grand slam. She'll play the winner of Dally v. Serena, if she plays Serena good experience for her!

Great job in using her Asian Wild card from finishing runner-up in the Asian Championships, to Li Na, after Li Na qualified on her own :)

Sania's gonna be the best female from her part of world to date.

hope she does play Serena
love to see Sania on TV.

Sania's FH :worship: :)
her 1st serve is pretty impressive too these days :)

cant wait to see how this girl plays, saw her on set point or match point in her first round match but that wasnt much so will be good to see her play.

Jan 19th, 2005, 01:44 AM
I was surprised with how quickly she won, as for her serve, she seems to be really shaky starting, I saw the stats after the first three games, sania held both games making just 1 of 10 first serves, after that she pulled it up to about 70%

Jan 19th, 2005, 01:46 AM
AMAZING UPSET! She doesn't even have a profile on the IBM ticker! :eek:

Well done! I'm anxious to see this girl play!! Tomorrow should be a good day for me as far as matches on ESPN2 (Sharapova's match & Serena's match.....I, of course, will be cheering for the underdog)! :p :dog: Woof!

Jan 19th, 2005, 02:57 PM
You know this is kinda crazy, I saw her win a 10k challenger in Wrexham earlier this year...shes pretty good, but I never thought she would rip through her draw quite the way she would. Its kinda freaky thinking back actually, Im pleased I saw her out and there and do well.

Petra :rolleyes: :help:

Jan 19th, 2005, 04:47 PM
name-change, I actually haven't seen her play unfortunately , I don't often watch TV coz I don't have sports channels... :sad:
But yeah, I like her
She's cute, she's from India :hearts: , it's enough for me to like her lol
But I hope to have the opportunity to see her play soon...

BTW, does anyone know what will be her rankings after the AO with 3d Round points ? (approximatively) Thx

Does anyone know where Sania will now be ranked?

right before and a little after the london and wrexham titles she was training in Italy with Boris Becker's old coach, Bob Brett, she attributes her improvement generally to that.

Jan 19th, 2005, 06:10 PM
sania with the points for reaching the third round will be near 128, 66pts, if I did the math correctly. If she does win against Serena she will be top 100, (yes I know that is very wishful thinking).

Mirza Gal Lib!
Indian tennis' Glam Slam Ma'am Sania Mirza, who's made history of her own at the Australian Open, hits on the shorts and longings of her new sexy and successful avatar exclusively for Delhi Times

Oops, those shorts! And those sexy shots against Cindy Watson at the Australian Open! Sania Mirza is the candid cover girl of the moment, this season's hit girl after that striking metamorphosis of sporty motifs and sexy success. "I'm on a high. The timing has been perfect. It was a great game, I turned my fate around. I just need to go out there and strike," says Sania from Melbourne.

There's something different about her now... a certain oomph. It's the glam thing. Or is it those blue shorts? Has she shed her skirts for good and got a makeover? "I was a tomboy on the court. I've tried to change that. It's essential to acquire an attitude. But it's not as if I'm doing the catwalk. I have a very casual and relaxed style. Till now, I wore blues and reds. I also wore skirts, but the other day, I wore blue shorts. I don't copy anyone's style. I'm casual in my style and in my mind. I don't make a big deal out of losing or winning," says Sania, who was in the pool hours before she spoke with Delhi Times.

The next alpha girl of tennis... is that Sania Mirza? "When Anna Kournikova became the alpha girl, she was the ultimate style icon and started modelling. Serena Williams is the current alpha girl, but she's still playing professional tennis. I don't mind doing that — being the poster girl and alpha girl. It's not just about how you walk, talk or move on court; it would mean looking glamorous but still concentrating on my game. In tennis, one has to be glamorous — there's no harm in it, that's how you get fame. But don't forget that it's not just about the skirt. The alpha girl has to handle everything: success, glamour, style and, most importantly, her game."

Icons inspire her. "Ohh, I just love Steffi Graff, she's quite a legend. She was so graceful on and off court. When she played, she was on top of her game. Now, she's married and settled. I dream of being like her." The odds are there, and so are the challenges. "Every day is a challenge for me. Physically, mentally and emotionally one has to give everything. I play for 8 to 9 hours a day, travel 30 weeks a year. I want to be among the top 50 by 2006. I dream, but it's realistic."

Boyfriends? "Where's the time?" Nights out, parties, dancing? "I don't do the girlie things. Maybe, I'll do all that when I retire. Then I'll model, hang around with friends and do the other stuff." At 18, she's skirting success and is an ambassador for the girl child in India. How would she inspire the girls back home? "Girls are no less than boys. Go girls, take that challenge. It's tough being in tennis but I believe nothing is impossible. I've had to make many sacrifices but it's all been worthwhile. I'll give tennis my best shot right now; there's a lifetime I can enjoy later."
