New Delhi: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated tennis ace Sania Mirza for clinching the WTA finals women's doubles title with partner Cara Black in Singapore on Sunday.

The Prime Minister said this was another major achievement for Sania. He expressed his views on social micro-blogging site, Twitter.

 

Sania and Cara, making their debut at the season finale, prevailed 6-1, 6-0 over Su-Wei Hseih of Chinese Taipei and Shuai Peng of China in a clash that lasted just about an hour.

Earlier in September, Sania met the Prime Minister in a courtesy visit. She was accompanied by her mother Naseema Mirza. That was after she bagged the US Open mixed doubles title.

"Indian tennis player and winner of the 2014 US Open Mixed Doubles Event, Ms Sania Mirza, called on the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today," a PIB release had stated.
