Why Sania shines

There are those who think Sania Mirza is overrated. Overhyped, maybe. But not overrated. If you watched her match last night against Kuznetsova you would know why I say this.

Sania lost, but I am convinced she will win Wimbledon someday. I don't say that because I 'hope' an Indian will win and do our country proud. I say it out of the conviction about her natural - and nurtured - talents.

Now you might say - she is talented.
So are others.

She is driven, she is determined.
Well, so are many others (esp. those Russians!)

I just think she has 'it'. The look and attitude of a winner.

She has been lucky enough to find something she is naturally good at - plus she has the fire inside which makes her keep wanting to do it better.

Many of us are round pegs stuck in square holes. By choice or circumstance, some of us find the slot in which our individual talent fits perfectly. And of course, then we have to work hard - really hard - to hone that talent.

But when the combination of those two things occurs - you have the 'X' factor. This X factor gives you a fire within and you glow that little bit brighter.

Sania glows. And unless internal reasons (like ego) or external reasons (like injury) slow her down... this girl will certainly 'go the distance'.

    Hey Rashmi
    Yesterday's match was excellent and Sania gave Kuznetsova a really tough time and I actually thought Sania would win.But, she wasn't quick enough and made too many double faults .
    ps. Check mail!

  3. Hi Rashmi,
    Don't you think it is more of karma & destiny?

    Your Friendly Astrologer

  4. With a pathetic service game like hers, you really think that she can go the distance?
    In yesterdays game(if you really saw it)neither of the players were able to hold onto their serves with any kind of consistency!
    In fact Sania lost because she "out-served" Kuznetsova.
    The game was an eclectic mix of double faults and overhitting interspersed with a few splendid winners.

    Miles to go, especially in todays times where 18 is not exactly "young"

  5. Agree with Jeeves. there has ben a lot of times when people have lost in the second round of grand slams fighting. Not all of them have gone on to win grand slams. She is not overrated. Her 70 ATP rating is probably bang on. She has to stop drinking Tata Tea before playing if she really wants to do something more. All said and done, we must accept she is the first Indian woman to achieve so much in tennis.

  6. hi rashmi,

    Its revathi here for the first time, i liked your view about 'sania' and her 'performance', but I wish she concentrates lmore on her carrer than showing off at 'fashion shows' and ADs ,she has a long way to go,dedication is a must for it.

  7. Love the way you write. Hey Ken, nice to see you here. Is this destiny or what? :)

  8. She does have some endorsements going... but as long as she performs - so what? I think it was also bad luck to be pitted against the no 5 seed in round 2 itself. So .. as the friendly astrologer says.. there is an element of destiny involved. But I for one dobelieve that even destiny is driven to an extent by individual willpower and effort. As the old saying goes God only helps those who help themselves

  9. somehow the entire hue and cry over her various endorsements is uncalled for--somebody has a problem with her earning a little more?
    and frankly,dedication and endorsements are two words that must never be spoken in the same breath.
    give her a break.

  10. I think she should be given enough time to reach where we would want her to reach. Fans tend to write sports people off like it happens in cricket

  11. Hype determines everything. As soon as somebody gets hyped,their real talents go down. It's the same with all Indians. Even dumb players are viewed as the best. So,they are satisfied with that. They don't try to become better. Indians all have a thirst for money and that is why we don't have great scientists and stuff. She is doing stuff for money(think commercials).

  12. I am not against Sania...i also wish she to win wimbledon some day..but i cudnt find ur article tht catchy...i mean u just say she has 'it'...this explainatio sounds more emotional thn emotion is being an indian..neways..i also do have the same emotion...but we need to get somthing more rational reasoning to say that why she can go long way..

  13. Hi,

    A good article. I too think that Sania gave a really good fight to Svetlana. In the final analysis, there wasn't much to separate the two in that particular match.

    Methinks that currently Sania plays with a nothing-to-lose attitude. She goes for her shots. She is not scared or intimidated by her opponents. Probably because she realizes, and rightly so, that she is a beginner.

    However, the real problem will begin once the consolidation stage starts.... once other players have seen enough of her game and once she realizes that she is expected to win certain matches against certain opponents (ie: those ranked below her)

    There is a long way to go for. But, as an icon she has done her job.

    I would say that this is akin to Anna Kournikova's appearance that later led to the Russian Revolution.

    I'm sure a lot of Indian girls are dusting their shoes and getting ready!

  14. the media is like - she's still 18, etc - but 18 isnt exactly young in tennis - sharapova, the champ is 18- kuznetsova 19 and martina hingis retired at 21.

    with her fake accent and false pride she is disgusting. she cant serve for nuts. i've never seen her volley. the only thing that is in her favour are the forehand strokes.

    i think sania is a sourav ganguly of tennis. highly overrated and useless.

  15. I agree with you. She is going to make it big someday, that also in grass courts specially, as it seems she is more comfortable on that.
    I had a post on that just before the match.
    In that match I or rather everyone were expecting the repeat of Dubai open. But Svetlana was laudable.
    Sania is full of moxie inside and will surely make it big someday.
