Ace tennis star Sania Mirza has documented her journey to become the World No 1 in the women’s doubles rankings in an autobiography. Titled, ‘Ace Against Odds’, the book is set for release this July.

Mirza has co-authored the book with her father, Imran Mirza.

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 Mirza

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.

Mirza, who announced her retirement from the singles circuit in 2012 underwent a remarkable transformation between August 2015 and March 2016, during which she pocketed 41 consecutive wins with her doubles partner Martina Hingis, and went on to become the World No 1 in the Women’s Doubles rankings.

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.
