2014 has been a great year for Sania Mirza. Even as rumours of a troubled marriage did rounds, the queen of the court won her third mixed doubles Grand Slam title and wrapped up her season with the year-end finale trophy. On the other hand established Indian tennis players in male category were still finding hard to win games.
28-year-old Sania, who has many firsts to her name, grew further in stature as she became the first Indian to win the season-ending finale, a feat which has eluded even old war-horse Leander Paes.
Sania won the US Open with first-time partner Bruno Soares and now has three mixed doubles Grand Slam trophies in her cabinet which already consists of Australian Open and French Open.
