Sania Mirza- its all about dreaming

Sania Mirza's sensational form continued unabated as she upset seventh seed Martina Hingis to storm into the third round of the $600,000 East West Bank Classic tournament.
Sania beat the world number 12 Swiss 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 to enter next round of the tournament. Sania will play the winner of the clash between French Virginie Razzano and her good friend Shahar Peer of Israel in the next round.
The Hyderabadi achieved a career-best WTA ranking of 30 riding on the back of her sterling form at the US hardcourt for the past three weeks.
Sania's impressive build up to the US Open started with the Cincinnati Open where she reached the quarter-finals and followed it up with a final berth at Stanford and a semi-final appearance at Acura Classic last week.
Three top-20 players in Tatiana Golovin, Patty Schnyder, Dinara Safina bore the burnt of Sania's fury in last three weeks.
On Wednesday, it was the turn of former Wimbledon Champion Hingis

Sania Mirza beat Monday blues to break into the top-30 in the world rankings. And ended a 20-year drought to become the first Indian, man or woman, to be in that slot after Ramesh Krishnan, who was ranked 23 in 1987. As the 20-year-old climbed the rankings, she raised the hopes of a billion Indians who consider her India’s answer to Maria Sharapova – high on style, high on content. A deserving youth icon. But the youngster, much like Sachin Tendulkar and other sporting genius in the country, has inevitably found herself the topic of intense debate. Her yo-yoing on the world rankings, choking at big matches and her many endorsements have provided the fodder. The camera loves her, but does that make for good tennis?

Yes, definitely so. As long as her game is not suffering, she is entitled to do anything she wants. And Sania has proved that tennis is still her passion. Every player worth his or her salt has to face the ups and downs in their game. So why single Sania when she loses in the first round of a tournament? Every day is not a sunday if you care to remember this simple fact. The media tends to go overboard everytime she loses and every time she wins which is ridiculously hilarious. Today when she has broken into the top 30, she is everbody's darling. When she was at her career low of 65, we were out to blame her for endorsing products, walking on the ramp, talking on pre marital sex and to the extent of blaming her for getting injured and being out of action.......GAWD help yucks can we get!!!!!!!!!!

Guys leave her alone. She is doing what she does the best. Playing tennis. Let her enjoy her game and let her live in peace. She has gone where no indian girl has ever treaded. at least give her some respect for that simple logical fact. I think it just does not matter whether she will ever break into top 10 or not. What matters is that Sania has proven that if you dare to dream you can achieve. She dared, she achieved. Way to go girl.
