Sania Mirza – The First Indian Woman Tennis Player to be Top Seeded in Wimbledon

Sania Mirza – The First Indian Woman Tennis Player to be Top Seeded in Wimbledon

Ad Banner

With yet another feather in her cap, Sania Mirza is now the first Indian woman tennis player to be top seeded in Wimbledon. 

Sania Mirza has made her mark yet again by becoming the first Indian women tennis player to be top seeded in the ongoing Wimbledon, or in any Grand Slam championship. In fact, the only time Indians were top seeded in a Grand Slam earlier, was in 1999 – Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes in the French Open edition men’s doubles.

Sania Mirza, 28, is currently playing at Wimbledon for her 15th year.



Wimbledon has always been remarkable for the tennis star. She won her first major title there, in the girls’ doubles category, at the junior Grand Slam, 2003. She is now a member of the ‘Last-four Club’ in Wimbledon, which will enable her to use certain privileges.

Speaking about the membership in London, she said, “It’s a great honour to be the top-seed in what is considered to be the ‘home of tennis’.”

Her father, Imran Mirza added, “It’s a proud moment and is an official acknowledgement of Sania’s sustained, consistent performances at the highest level.”

Sania is a three time Grand Slam winner, and this is another feather in her cap.
