Saina Mirza and her partner Martina Hignis won the women’s doubles title at Wimbledon in a thrilling three setter with the scoreline reading 5-7 7-6 7-5. Mirza had won her first women’s title at a Grand Slam although she has won three mixed doubles title at the Majors.
It was an amazing match as Saina Mirza and Martina Hignis were trailing 2-5 in the deciding set and took a lot of courage and guts to comeback in the match in such dramatic fashion. At 5-5 the match was stopped due to bad light and allowed the Centre Court roof to be closed. To come out here at Wimbledon this is something we dreamt as kids.
Mirza praised the support she and her partner Martina Hignis got in the entire tournament and hoped this would have a positive impact back home in cricket mad India. I hope that this would inspire a lot of girls in India and make them believe that they would be Grand Slam Champions.
Saina Mirza has been in excellent form and has represented India in the Asian games, brought a lot of medals for the country. The support that Saina Mirza got in the tournament was amazing. Three of Indians have done the country so proud in the Wimbledon and hope Saina Mirza would bring more success with Martina Hignis in the US Open.
