Sania Mirza Becomes World Number 1 in Women’s Doubles.

13 April 2015 | 1:04pm

After many years of hard work and battling against all odds, GSC’s Sania Mirza has finally claimed the world number one spot after the recent success she has achieved with new partner Martina Hingis. The pair have won three tournaments in a row over in the USA including Indian Wells Masters, Miami Masters and the Family Circle Cup in Charleston. Sania is seen as a hugely important role model to Indian women gaining success on the world stage despite many barriers to participation encountered by many women across the country.

This has always been a goal for Sania and we are delighted to see her achieve it and look forward to seeing her retain it with many tournaments still to play this year before defending her Singapore crown.
