India's New Sporting Icons

India's latest sporting sensations - Sania Mirza and Saina Nehwal - young tough competitive and terrific champions. Both achieved World No.1 ranking in March 2015.They are not just sports icons. They are also soft demure sophisticated and charming. They could walk the ramp with as much consummate ease as they stride the courts demolishing opponents.One hunts in singles while the other hunts in a pair. Both have aggressive possessive go getter fathers! Both are Hyderabadis !And Sania and Saina are a fine example of an anagram !(Photos are from the web)
Sania Mirza attained ranking of world no.1 in Tennis Doubles. She won three major WTA doubles titles titles in a row teamed up with Swiss Miss Martina Hingis.
Saina Nehwal climbed to World No.1 in badminton. She has won several Super Series titles including the China Open where she beat fancied top ranked Chinese players in their own backyard.
