Your accomplishments make us proud: PM Modi to Sania

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis on winning the US Open women’s doubles title.

Mr. Modi took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to greet Mirza.

Sania won the US Open women’s doubles with her Swiss partner Hingis yesterday as the top-seeded Indo-Swiss team outplayed the fourth seed team of Casey Dellacqua and Yaroslava Shvedova 6-3 6-3 in the final.

This is Sania’s second consecutive Grand Slam title of the season, and fifth overall. Sania’s win capped off a memorable US Open for Indians as Leander Paes had won the mixed doubles trophy with Hingis on Friday, in a repeat show of the Wimbledon.
