Sania Mirza Biography

An athlete whose name is synonymous with the sport in India, Mirza is currently at No. 1 in the women’s doubles rankings with partner and former Singles No. 1 Martina Hingis, whom she began partnering in 2015. Although Mirza did not have much success in the singles in the early part of her career and was plagued by injury, her comeback in the doubles has been nothing short of spectacular. She retired from the singles following that injury despite victories over a number of top-10 players, but came back in the doubles to go to the top of the rankings. Following the beginning of her partnership with Hingis, the pair have together won titles at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2015, following which they won the 2016 Australian Open title after a dominant run. Following their WTA finals win, the two ended 2015 at the No. 1 spot. Mirza will be part of the mixed and womens doubles teams at the Rio Olympics. It now remains to be seen who will partner her, given that Rohan Bopanna has already qualified for the games on the back of his top 10 doubles ranking, while Leander Paes will need to be selected as Bopanna’s doubles partner to be able to partner Mirza in the mixed doubles event. The Indian has had success in the doubles even on the junior circuit, winning the girls’ doubles title at Wimbledon in 2003 with Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova. Mirza's biggest mixed doubles successes have come with Mahesh Bhupathi; the pair have together won Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open in 2009 and the French Open in 2012, prior to which they were runners-up at the Australian Open. Mirza has an extensive record representing India on the international stage, winning gold in every discipline – the singles, doubles, mixed doubles and team event at the Afro-Asian Games of 2003. Also highly successful at the mixed doubles at the Asian Games, the Indian won silver and bronze at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in 2010. Now enjoying a renewed run of immense form, Mirza is one of the country’s best hopes at the Olympics. She has only ever partnered Rohan Bopanna at the IPTL, and should she partner with Myneni at the mixed doubles, will present an interesting pairing for viewers.
