Multiple Grand Slam Champion and World No. 1 in women’s doubles, Sania Mirza is a name synonymous with the sport she excels in. An inspiration for millions around the world, Sania’s achievements are the sort dreams are made of. Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan released the tennis star’s autobiography today at The Leela Mumbai.
Ace against Odds is the story of this most iconic Indian player who beat incredible odds to get to the top of her sport. Sania writes with candour of the hardships along the way, of the physical and emotional trauma caused by injuries and medical procedures, of the friends and partners who became her mainstay along with her family, of the pressures of constant public scrutiny and, not least, the politics and heartbreaks that inevitably accompany success.
During the launch Salman Khan said “Sania has been an inspiration to a lot of young girls today. It’s her undying spirit with which she keeps going is what makes her special. She is launching her autobiography, it’s a special moment for her and I am glad to be a part if this.”
Adding about her autobiography Sania said “Ace Against the Odds’ is my story of an amazing journey and I am delighted to share it with the world. I feel specially honoured and grateful that my friend Salman took time out of his extremely busy schedule to officially launch my autobiography.”
Co-written by Sania’s father Imran Mirza and Shivani Gupta, ‘Ace against Odds’ is published by HarperCollins India and is available online and in all major book stores across the country.
