The recent French Open victory of the Indian duo of Mahesh Bhupathi & Sania Mirza has well raised the lost expectations of the Indian sports-lovers from (once) the biggest women sportstar of India, to beg a medal for the country in the upcoming London Olympics. The caliber of her partner needing no introductions, her qualification for the 2012 games now remains the only urgent need!
On the other side, the star shuttler Saina Nehwal too entered the finals of the Thailand Open today. Though qualified for the London Olympics, another 2 victories will give her a big confidence boost; presently World No. 5th, this diligent Hissar girl is the biggest hope of the country in the 2012 Olympics.
With the name of the 5 times World Women’s Boxing champion, M.C. Marycom already in the final list, fingers are still crossed for Sania Mirza’s wild card entry to the games!
A medal each from these 3 proficient women will easily equal the country’s last Olympic performance. We wish them all the very best 🙂
