New Delhi:

Sania Mirza has shot to the top of the junior doubles girls rankings, the first Indian girl to have done so, after her maiden Grand Slam victory at Wimbledon early this month. Her singles ranking has also got a boost and she is now 15th in the list, according to the rankings released by the International Tennis Federation today. It has been a watershed year for 16-year-old Sania, who has made her presence felt in the junior competitions of Grand Slams. She reached the semi-finals of the French Open partnering compatriot Sanaa Bhambri before the historic triumph at Wimbledon where she clinched the girls' doubles crown with Russia's Alisa Kleybanova. Sania is now eyeing the US Open where she had reached the quarterfinals last year in company of Isha Lakhani. Sanaa is ranked 19th in doubles and 51 in singles. (PTI)
