Sania Mirza’s autobiography to hit the stands in July
The book titled ‘Ace Against Odds’ has been penned by Mirza along with her father Imran Mirza and is set to release in July.
“Sania’s is an extraordinary achievement and her autobiography is as compelling as it is inspirational. We are privileged to be able to work with her on the book,” says her publisher Harper Collins.
The 29-year-old sportswoman shot to fame at the age of 16 after winning the Wimbledon’s Championships Girls’ Doubles title.
She was ranked as India’s No. 1 player by the Women’s Tennis Association, both in singles and doubles circuits.
The autobiography chronicles her rise to the top and she talks about the difficulties and hardships as well as the joys and triumphs that came her way.
Mirza had announced her retirement from the singles circuit in 2012.
However, she has recently pocketed 41 consecutive wins with her doubles partner Martina Hingis, and has went on to become the World No. 1 in the Women’s Doubles ranking.
The book also contains some memorable encounters of the player on and off the court and the people and relationships that have contributed to her growth as a person and a sportsperson.
The tennis star who is married to cricketer Shoaib Malik is among the highest paid and high profile athletes in the country.
