Chandigarh:

Shoaib Akhtar may not have set alight the cricket series yet but the Pakistani speedster has already won an admirer in tennis ace Sania Mirza.

Sania, who is in Chandigarh to watch the second Indo-Pak ODI at Mohali on Thursday, said she liked Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi as well but the 'Rawalpindi express' stood apart because of his aggression.

"Shoaib Malik is good and I also liked Afridi for a while. But personally, I like Shoaib's (Akhtar) aggression. He is a great cricketer," Sania told reporters at the Chandigarh Lawn Tennis Association (CLTA) stadium.

The Hyderabadi said it would be her first India-Pakistan ODI on Thursday.

"The last one I watched was between India and New Zealand at Hyderabad," said Sania, whose father and some friends are accompanying her.

Sania, who spent the last weekend in Goa trying to relax during the off season, said she would re-start training at the end of this month.
