Sania Mirza
MUMBAI: The new year started on a bitter sweet note for Indian tennis star Sania Mirza, who has lost her no 1 ranking for the first time since 2015.
Although she won the Brisbane International with Bethanie Mattek-Sands, she lost her no. 1 ranking on the ATP charts to her partner owing to the victory.
Sania Mirza has been ranked World No.1 since 2015 but her gap of 330 points with Mattek-Sands meant that this victory helped the American close the gap.
Sania was visibly sporting of the fact that she had lost her World no.1 ranking to her partner.
“I feel like I’m handing over the Miss World crown over to her,” she said, “We go a long way back, the last time we played together we won Sydney and this year we have won Brisbane, so maybe we should play more often.”
Sania Mirza had one of he most successful periods while playing with former singles World No.1 Martina Hingis. The pair won a number of Grand Slam titles. The pair announced a surprise split-up in August 2016. Sania then paired up with Czech Barbora Strycova and had another successful year in 2016.
