Sania Mirza honoured with ‘Indian of the Year’ award

New Delhi: Indian Female Tennis sensation Sania Mirza emerged as the winner in the Sports category in the Indian of the Year 2015 hosted by CNN-News18 in association with Hindustan Times.

Sania felt humbled to have been acknowledged for her work and hoped she could continue her winning streak.


“It was incredible. We did not lose a match for six months in a sport where you play every week of the year. I dedicate this award to every girl who was told not to play sports because they would get a tan,” Mirza said

“No matter how many odds are stacked against you, if the almighty and fortune is on your side you will make it big,” Sania added.
