Sania Mirza is on a roll right now and is considered a prize catch in corporate circles. She was at yet another endorsement this time for a cellular company. The world number 77 player and cricket captain Saurav Ganguly now have mobile handsets named after them. "Well, I have done just whatever you have read in the papers. I did HPCL, Lotto and Tata Indicom," said Sania. Having got a wild card, Sania travels this weekend to take part in the NASDAQ Tier I tournament in Florida. Her ankle is in perfect shape now, which means no more painkillers. But Sania fans are concerned that the tennis icon should have her feet firmly on the ground so that she can fly high. "As soon as I come to know that I am getting distracted, that will be the last endorsement I will be doing," said Sania. Sania's parents handled her career before the advent of her managers who now decide what Sania does where and when. They say Sania would try to spend a couple of weeks with coach Bob Brett before the French Open and Wimbledon.
