In a country where cricketers dominate headlines, women from outside Bollywood struggle to make it to fame, a girl from Hyderabad shot to limelight and changed the perception of how her sport and women athletes are viewed in general. Sania Mirza, the phenomenon, rumbled on to headlines with her great tennis and her charming personality. Before Mirza, tennis was a minor sport in India.
