saniaNew Delhi:Tennis fans in the country have much to rejoice for as Sania Mirza’s journey to the numero uno spot in the women’s doubles will now be documented in her autobiography — Ace Against Odds — which will hit the stands this July.

The book, which will be published by Harper Collins, has been penned by Sania with her father Imran Mirza.

“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,” Karthika V.K., publisher and chief editor, Harper Collins said.

The 29-year-old Hyderabadi, who became an overnight sensation when she clinched the Junior Wimbledon’s Championships doubles title, hopes the book will act as a guide for budding tennis stars in the country.

“I hope the book is a useful roadmap to guide the next generation of tennis players from India. If my story can inspire even one youngster to the heights of winning a Grand Slam in the future, I will feel blessed,” Sania said in a statement.

The autobiography chronicles her rise to the top, and is peppered with anecdotes where she talks about the difficulties and hardships as well as the joys and triumphs that came her way.

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.

Sania, who was ranked as India’s No.1 player by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), both in singles and doubles circuits, announced her retirement from the singles circuit in 2012 but she took doubles tennis to new heights after teaming up with Swiss great Martina Hingis.

With 41 consecutive titles between August 2015 and March 2016, the combo of Sania and Martina went on to become the World No.1 in the women’s doubles rankings.
