Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif was born on July 16, 1984, in Hong Kong. She was one of eight girls born in Hong Kong to her Caucasian mother and Indian father. Her childhood was split between Hawaii and London, and it was in the former that she began her modeling career at age 14. After moving to London, she continued modeling, and eventually landed a role in her first film Boom.

Boom did not perform well at the box office, but still managed to get Katrina Kaif recognized as an up-and-coming star. After again relocating, this time to Mumbai, she instantly got steady work as both a model and an actress. She’s appeared in Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam films, and has been working exhaustively in both language and dance lessons to expand her repertoire as an Indian actress.

Katrina Kaif has four movies prepared for release in 2009: Rave Party, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, De Dhana Dhan, and Rajneeti.

Sania's father Imran, who coaches and manages her career, called off his daughter's engagement to Sohrab Mirza earlier this week.
Sohrab is currently studying business management in the United Kingdom. Sania, who is in Melbourne, has crashed out of Australian Open.
She will go to Kuala Lumpur on Friday for Fed Cup Asia Oceania Group 2 competition.

Aamir KhanThestrayer has become a player. The reclusive actor has evolved into asmartly packaged star. The record- breaking run of 3 Idiots has sealedhis status as the guru of good fortune.
Hequit studies after Intermediate at Mumbai’s N.M. College much to hisparents’ horror, choosing to work as an assistant director for fouryears. After his pin-up worthy debut in 1988, he wept every day cominghome from work, convinced that the nine films he had signed in a rushwould crash his career. Then in 2002, after he separated from Reena,his wife of 16 years, every alternative weekend he would see hischildren. Not what you would call the perfect ingredients for success.But Aamir Hussain Khan, all 44 years and 5 ft 7 inches of him, hiswife’s diamond studs twinkling in ears pierced for Lagaan, has alwaysswum against the tide.
Only now the tide seems to be swimming withhim. He’s just starred in 3 Idiots, a film that has been breaking boxoffice records at home and abroad, making Rs 240 crore in 10 days andstill counting. His last four films, released over three successiveyears, Rang De Basanti, Fanaa, Taare Zameen Par and Ghajini, made acollective box office revenue of over Rs 590 crore. He makes an averageof Rs 10 crore a year from each of the six brands he endorses. The wayhe marketed Ghajini will now be taught as part of a course in filmmarketing at IIM-Ahmedabad. The profit he is contemplating from 3Idiots, as a result of a wise decision to forego his fees and split theprofit three ways between producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, director RajuHirani and himself, will be over Rs 20 crore. But more than that, hisfilms have consistently hit a nerve with audiences, either getting themto participate in candlelight vigils inspired by Rang De Basanti, treatchildren with greater sensitivity as in Tare Zameen Par or even causethem to bulk up their bodies as in Ghajini. In an industry ripped apartby camps, he is his own institution, working with untested newdirectors (Farhan Akhtar in Dil Chahta Hai) and even failed filmmakers(Ashutosh Gowariker, who had two flops behind him, in Lagaan). He’sbeen a producer for the smash hit Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na which starredhis nephew and made Rs 115 crore at the box office, a director forTaare Zameen Par and even the unofficial CEO of Ghajini Inc. He shunsthe awards circus and has never been seen in public performing song anddance routines. Yet his decision to act in one movie at a time is now amass mantra and a sure career cure. His help was sought in resolvingthe two-month stand-off with multiplexes last year. And equally, hismove to not charge a fee for 3 Idiots could set off a trend of starsputting their talent where their mouth is in these leaner, meaner times.
Yet as he sits folded up in his favourite chair in the projection roomof his home, two floors below his mother’s home where he was born andbrought up, it is hard to think of the word superstar. He exudes anaura, but the room is more suited to that of a messy student, withbooks such as Katherine Frank’s Indira to Abraham Verghese’s The TennisPartner sharing shelf space with PC games and Bob Dylan and Sufiqawwali CDs. The make-up room is stacked with the tools of his trade,from spare costumes to a wigmaker’s dummy. And the terminal above hiscomputer has chronologically labelled scripts.
The actor recently talks about how he lost weight for his role ofRancho in 3 Idiots, which director Rajkumar Hirani rewrote for Khan, hespeaks of how he modelled the 17-year-old on the boyish director ofGhajini, A.R. Murugadoss, and his 14-year-old nephew Pablo, who cannever sit still. He jumps up to demonstrate, as he often does in hisexuberance, contorting his body like an over-active teenager. “ButRancho was also dangerous because he is without a flaw. The audience’sheart doesn’t go out to such a guy. So I made him curious rather thancocky,” he says. Thinking deeply about his character is something Khanhas done increasingly, whether it is Bhuvan’s stance in Lagaan, withhis with his weight evenly distributed on his legs to suggest innerstrength, or Aakash’s darting eyes in Dil Chahta Hai indicating what ashallow layabout he is.
Khan is a star who doesn’t play himself in every film, as AmitabhBachchan did at the height of his fame or Shah Rukh Khan tends to do.He plays the character, which may be why he tends to work with newdirectors, who help in creating a fresh persona every time. “Audiencesnow expect an element of surprise from him,” points out Kabir. “Like amagician, they want him to conjure up a new character.” Once he hasidentified the perfect script, a director whose vision he shares, and aproducer who will back it, Khan surrenders himself to the moment.There’s no spillover, no hangover. Everything apart from the movie goesinto a soft focus. “When I read a script, it just goes straight to mybrain,” he says. “It’s like a computer in its memory. It just soakseverything in and then it’s in my head at all times,” he adds, even ashe acts out the first part he got in a play in Class XII. It was a lineas a painter in a Gujarati play, a role he couldn’t actually performbecause he was sacked for missing a day of rehearsals. The line remainsetched in his hard drive. He repeats it now: “Bloody hell, no onemarries me. I wish his mother gets married to a dog.”
On the sets, Khan is a trooper. He will hang out even when he doesn’thave lines, or just play scrabble with the assistants. He will promotethe film across the country on every media he can find. And he willjust not want to go home. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who directed him inRang De Basanti, and has been a friend since, says, “He makes himselfcompletely accessible to the filmmaker.” Kunal Kohli, who directed himin Fanaa, recalls how Khan was apologetic even asking him for four daysoff in the middle of the shoot in Mumbai in 2005 because he wanted toget married to Kiran Rao, a highly rated assistant director. “He’sthere whether it is for readings or costume trials,” adds Kohli. “Andhe’s just incredibly intelligent. How many people do you know who cansolve the Rubik’s cube with one hand?”

Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler was born July 1, 1977, in Portland, Maine. Her unique first name came about after her mother, model and former rock groupie Bebe Buell, saw Liv Ullmann on the cover of a TV Guide the week Liv was born. As for the roots of her last name, Liv always believed that her father was musician Todd Rundgren, with whom her mother had a long-term relationship, as he helped raise her.

Although her birth certificate stated that Rundgren was indeed her father, a 10-year-old Liv became suspicious after meeting Aerosmith's Steven Tyler at a Rundgren concert, and even more suspicious after seeing Steven Tyler's daughter Mia Tyler, who could have passed for Liv's twin, at an Aerosmith concert.

Liv confronted her mother about the topic, and her mother told her the truth: Steven Tyler was her father (Liv was the product of an eight-month relationship between Tyler and Buell).

Liv Tyler made her biological father's name her own at the age of 12, and two years later, mother and daughter headed to New York. While Liv Tyler grew into a statuesque, blue-eyed beauty (she had her father's unmistakable pouty, Mick Jagger-like lips), she claims she was chubby and awkward while growing up.

Family friend Paulina Porizkova saw the beauty in Liv Tyler (as does everyone today), and encouraged her to start modeling. Liv Tyler did, and she soon appeared in magazines such as Seventeen, YM and Mirabella.

However, modeling eventually became boring, and Liv Tyler wanted to start acting. She was offered a part in the 1994 film Silent Fall, which came and went quietly, and she was also cast as Callie in 1995's Heavy. Liv Tyler also starred in the 1995 bomb Empire Records, which was set in a record store, but she did attract attention while costarring with Alicia Silverstone in dad's video for Crazy.

Finally in 1996, Liv Tyler landed the lead role of Lucy in Bernardo Bertolucci's exquisite film about a teen in search of finding her father and losing her virginity, Stealing Beauty. Although the film was not a moneymaker, it did raise eyebrows in film circles, especially at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival.

After a starring role in Tom Hanks' film That Thing You Do!, Liv Tyler was cast in 1997's Inventing the Abbotts. She costarred with Joaquin Phoenix in Inventing the Abbots, and the pair embarked a two-year romantic relationship.

After a tiny role in U Turn and an uncredited role in Can't Hardly Wait, Liv Tyler starred as Bruce Willis' daughter in the summer blow-up hit Armageddon, which opened on her birthday.

In 1999, Liv Tyler rounded out a stellar cast in Cookie's Fortune, appeared in Plunkett & Macleane, costarred with Ralph Fiennes in Onegin, and appeared as herself in the documentary Franky Goes to Hollywood.

Liv Tyler starred in the female star-studded Dr. T and the Women (along with fellow celebrity progeny Kate Hudson), and was next seen in the comedy One Night at McCool's, as the scheming Jewel Valentine.

Next up for Liv Tyler was the first installment of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, in which she played Arwen Undomiel. She was recast in the second the third installments of the trilogy: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Ring.
In 2003, Liv Tyler married her boyfriend of three years, British rocker Royston Langdon from the group Spacehog, in a small ceremony in Barbados. She was also named the spokesmodel for Givenchy.
Jersey Girl (2004) and Lonesome Jim (2005) with Casey Affleck were the two projects that followed for Liv Tyler. Also in 2004, Liv Tyler gave birth to her first child, a baby boy named Milo William Langdon.

In 2006, Liv Tyler had a brief hiatus from acting, only to return in 2007 with Reign Over Me, costarring Adam Sandler, Jada Pinkett Smith and Saffron Burrows. so lifestyle..

Katherine Heigl was born November 24, 1978, in Washington D.C., to parents Paul and Nancy. Raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, along with her two older brothers and older sister, Katherine Heigl's time in the spotlight began when she started modeling.

Once Wilhelmina, a modeling agency, got hold of photos of a then 9-year-old Katherine Heigl, it didn't take long for her to get modeling jobs. She appeared in magazine ads and a Sears catalogue, and made her television debut with a role in a Cheerios commercial.
Modeling paved the way to acting for Katherine Heigl, as it did for young actresses such as Rachael Leigh Cook and Mena Suvari. By the age of 12, she could be seen on the silver screen in the 1992 film That Night, making her feature film debut.

After a role in Steven Soderbergh's King of the Hill, Katherine Heigl appeared as Gerard Depardieu's daughter in the 1994 remake of the French film My Father the Hero. Her role as the beautiful teen having to bear with her father's strict rules was not a stretch for the actress; apparently, she was not allowed to date until she was 16.
Venturing into the action genre, next up for Katherine Heigl was the film Under Siege 2: Dark Territory as Steven Seagal's niece.
She only pursued a full-time acting career after graduating from New Canaan High School, where she balanced acting and modeling with the hectic life of a student. With appearances in Seventeen magazine, as well as film and television roles under her belt, Katherine Heigl moved to the hub of acting to further her career.

Once in L.A., Katherine Heigl starred in independent films such as Prince Valiant, Stand-Ins (as Rita Hayworth's stand-in) and the Disney feature Wish Upon a Star. After a role in the 1998 Bride of Chucky, the latest installment of the Chucky slasher series, and the film Bug Buster, Katherine Heigl starred opposite Peter Fonda in the made-for-TV film The Tempest.

Katherine Heigl started making herself comfortable on television, becoming a regular on the 1999 short-lived drama Roswell -- a former hit alien series on the WB network. She actually auditioned for the three female lead roles before winning the role of Isabel, the "alien on earth" character she portrays on the show.
While working on Roswell, Katherine Heigl made time to take on two film projects, with roles in 100 Girls and Valentine.

In the spring of 2001, Katherine Heigl appeared in NBC's TV movie Ground Zero, but it was shelved by the network for two years and eventually broadcast in 2003. Also in 2005, Katherine Heigl was cast opposite Johnny Knoxville in The Ringer, a Farrelly brothers comedy. Soon after, she was cast as Isabella Linton in the MTV modern adaptation of Emily Bront's classic novel Wuthering Heights.

Katherine Heigl biggest break has come in the form of the hit series Grey's Anatomy where she can be seen every week as Dr. Isobel Stevens. With all the good press and accolades the show received, it was obvious Katherine Heigl's star was on the rise.

Cara Wakelin

Cara Hain Wakelin was born on February 8, 1977, in Melbourne, Australia. Since the day she was born, Cara has had it tough, which turned her into a survivor. She was part of a quadruplet pregnancy, but only Cara and her fraternal twin, Bain, survived the troubled birth. Cara never met her Australian father and was raised by her mother in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Further tension came when Cara's mother married, then divorced; Cara's family was always short of money and moved as many as 15 times in 10 years.

Even by the time she began attending high school at the Etobicoke School of the Arts, Cara was still struggling. She was very shy and introverted, even though she showed artistic promise and was quite athletic. She felt more at home with animals than with people during her adolescence, and Cara had a menagerie of pets at home.

Cara Wakelin answers play..boy's call
Nevertheless, Cara was determined to get an education, feeling that it was the only way she could make it. She enrolled in McMaster University, in the nearby city of Hamilton, Ontario, where she studied philosophy and sociology. During her last year of study, Cara was flipping through an ex-boyfriend's Play..boy magazine and discovered that Play..boy was on tour searching for a millennium Play..mate. Thinking it might be a good way to pay off her large student loan, Cara decided to audition when the Play..boy bus came to Toronto in 1998.

Cara's mother was hugely supportive, and even went along with Cara when she auditioned for Play..boy. Cara recalled that her mother kept her from chickening out: "'You've come this far,' she told me, 'so you obviously wanted to do it in the first place. Why back out now? You'll regret it for the rest of your life.'" Sure enough, the experience was a positive one, and within a few months, an excited Cara was invited to Chicago for a test shoot.

Cara Wakelin becomes canada's play..mate
Cara was selected as Play..boy's Miss November 1999. Hugh Hefner had rejected Cara's first centerfold because there were too many peanuts on the floor of her set (it was in a roadside bar), but decided to put Cara on the cover of the Canadian edition of Play..boy in a hockey jersey. It was only the second time Hef had put a current play..mate on the cover, and the edition sold out within two weeks. Cara became a celebrity in Canada overnight.

Cara continued to work as a Play..boy model and traveled throughout America, Russia, Japan, and even Chile; most recently, she graced the cover of the 2005 Play..boy Swimsuit Calendar (Play..boy 's first). She's been in commercials and ads for Sears, Ford, Coca-Cola, Miller, and Budweiser. Cara has also tried her hand at acting, taking roles in Death to Smoochy (2002) and TV's Relic Hunter. Cara currently divides her time between Los Angeles and Toronto.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Ann Tweedy has spent nearly her entire life in the limelight. Born June 30, 1983, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Cheryl began her modeling career at the tender age of 6 when she won the prestigious World Star of Future Modeling competition. And she didn’t stop there. In the years that followed, she was named “Best Looking Girl of Newcastle,” “Most Attractive Girl” at the Metro Square, and she starred in a string of popular commercials seen throughout the British Isles.

“Chezza,” as she’s known in the media, won another competition of sorts, at the age of 16, when she beat out thousands of other young women to earn a place at the Royal Ballet Summer School in London. Despite her success as a dancer, Cheryl’s true love was singing and she longed for the opportunity to show off her dazzling vocal prowess.

Luckily, she was given a chance to do just that in 2002, when ITV1 held an open audition for its new reality show, Popstars: The Rivals. “I was working as a waitress at the time,” Cheryl recalls. “I saw Popstars would be about two new bands, so I just thought I’d give an audition a go.”

And it’s a good thing she did. Cheryl’s multitalented skill set blew away the show’s producers. “When I got through all the heats I started to think I could go all the way,” she recalls. And indeed she did. Chezza was the first contestant chosen for the newly formed group Girls Aloud. Joining her in the band were Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts, and Sarah Harding.

The girls easily defeated their male counterparts on Popstars thanks to the huge success of their debut single, “Sound of the Underground.” In fact, the song proved to be so popular that it stayed at the No. 1 spot on the charts for an incredible four weeks.

Encouraged by the song’s success, Girls Aloud headed into the studio once again to record their debut album, Sound of the Underground. Released on May 26, 2003, the disc sold over 320,000 copies worldwide thanks to the hit songs “Girls Allowed” and “Life Got Cold.”

Unfortunately, Cheryl made news for all the wrong reasons later that year when she was convicted of assaulting a toilet attendant at a nightclub in Guilford. Although she was cleared of all charges of racially aggravated assault, Cheryl was found guilty of occasioning actual bodily harm and was sentenced to 120 hours of community service. According to Cheryl, the incident brought her “down to earth.” She says: “It made me realize just how lucky I was to lead the life I do."

Cheryl put the episode behind her, and she and Girls Aloud switched their focus to recording What Will the Neighbours Say? Released on November 24, 2004, the ambitious sophomore effort debuted at No. 6 on the UK album charts and later achieved platinum certification. Just as importantly, the disc received a mountain of critical praise from publications like The Guardian, which hailed it as being "funny, clever, immediate," and "richly inventive."

Following a successful live tour, the girls headed back into the studio to record their third album. Released on December 5, 2005, Chemistry was a critically praised album, with respected media outlets like The Guardian, NME and Top of the Pops, which included it on its best of year-end album charts. The disc was also equally popular with the group’s loyal fans who made Chemistry Girls Aloud’s third consecutive platinum-selling record.

Girls Aloud hit the charts again in September 2006, with the release of their first greatest hits compilation, The Sound of Girls Aloud. The album debuted at No. 1 on the UK charts, and went on to sell an impressive 84,000 copies in its first week. After the album's success, the girls went out on tour, hitting 15 spots across the UK to sing to adoring fans.

And the music doesn't stop there. Cheryl Tweedy and Girls Aloud followed up in August 2007, with their fourth studio album, Tangled Up that saw the hits "Sexy! No, No, No..." and "Call the Shots," which became their 17th hit and reached No. 3 on the UK charts.

Cheryl also made headlines of a personal sort in 2006 when she married English footballer Ashley Cole in a lavish ceremony on July 15. The wedding was financed by OK! magazine, which paid the star couple £1,000,000 to publish pictures of the event. “It went very well,” Cheryl says. “I thought something would go wrong on the day, but all went smoothly and it was a great time. Everyone seemed to have fun after too.”

In 2008, The Sun newspaper reported that Cheryl Tweedy's husband Ashley had been sleeping with several women during their marriage, including 22-year-old hairdresser Aimee Walton, who sold her story to the paper. In the months to follow, Cheryl was spotted several times out in public without her wedding ring.

In June 2008, Cheryl Cole replaced Sharon Osborne as a judge on the reality TV show The X Factor. Her arrival on one the UK's biggest TV shows wasn't met with universal joy, however, as reports of confrontation between Cheryl Tweedy (Cole) and fellow judge Dannii Minogue began to surface.

2009 is shaping up to be quite a big year for Cheryl Tweedy and the lovely ladies of Girls Aloud. After confirming rumors that they're set to release a brand new album entitled Out of Control, which contains the hit singles "The Loving Kind" and "The Promise."

Along with a new album set to hit the shelves, Girls Aloud and Cheryl Tweedy also performed at the 2009 Brit Awards and brought home the award for Best British Single for "The Promise."

Thereis no denying the fact that Malaika Arora Khan is one of the mostdesirable item girl of the tinsel town with the evergreen item numberslike Chaiyyan-Chaiyyan in Dil Se and Mahi Ve in Kaante, but we have hada chance to see her share screen space with her brother-in-law, SalmanKhan.
Forthe first time, she will be seen together with Salman Khan in an itemsong composed by Lalit Pandit, for the Abhinav Kashyap-directed, ArbaazKhan-produced ‘Dabangg’. The song, titled ‘Munni Badnaam Hui DarlingTere Liye’, has been choreographed by Farah Khan. It will be shot in aset resembling a rugged, sweaty Bihari bar, something like BeediJalaile in Omkara.
It has beena long time since we saw, Malaika spicing up the screens and we eagerlyawait this number, coz Malaika with Salman, is something which we don’tget to see in an ordinary course.

The year 2009 in Bollywood saw some good movies but very few managed to set the cash registers ringing at box office. The first hit of the year was the edgy Dev D, Anurag Kashyap’s modern version of Sarat Chandra’s classic love tale ‘Devdas’. But after that box office couldn’t warm up to better collections and, to make things worse, there was a producer’s strike for many months of the first half of 2009.
Yet, most of the films that released afterward tanked or managed just average business. Worst was the debacle of big-budget movies like Kambakkht Ishq, Kurbaan, Blue and London Dreams. In the year when more than 90 per cent of the films were declared flops, silver linings came in the form of Wanted, New York and Love Aaj Kal among others.
Here are top ten Bollywood films (in the order of their release) that catered to our entertainment needs and emerged successful at ticket windows.

Dev D
As the handsome Devdas of modern times, Abhay Deol couldn’t think beyond sharaab and shabaab. Loves a village belle, but eventually loses his heart to a cute prostitute. Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Dev D’ was refreshingly different and an instant hit. The movie also featured some good songs and performances.

New York
Released in June, ‘New York’ came as a respite for Bollywood. Yashraj Film’s first and the only hit of the year. Katrina Kaif showed her acting skills, so did John Abraham. Kabir Khan tackled the terrorism issue with sensitivity, without taking sides.

Love Aaj Kal
This movie not only got thumbs-up from critics but earned well from all the quarters, including overseas. Imitiaz Ali knows how to deliver a ‘romantic’ hit. Loved Saif Ali Khan as Jai, a stereotype modern-day loverboy with commitment phobia and ambitious dreams, and also loved Rishi Kapoor as the old Veer Singh. But Giselle Monteiro was the real surprise.

Main ‘sa’ ko ‘fa’ bolta hun! Vishal Bharadwaj’s dark comedy, Kaminey was not a typical masala film, but audiences and critics liked it. Most of all Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra looked very ‘fexy’ together.

Salman Khan’s no-holds-barred action flick ‘Wanted’ emerged as a box office darling. Prabhudeva seemed at ease wielding the megaphone, just like the way he dances. Propped on Salman’s one-liners and Mahesh Manjrekar’s acting, ‘Wanted’ was a paisa-vasool film.

Wake Up Sid
A simple coming-of-age story of an aimless, rich boy. Wake Up Sid, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkana Sen, hadn’t something extraordinary to offer, but a simple tale dealing with sheer innocence got the viewers flocking to theatres.

All The Best
Though the movie wasn’t really good as a comedy, but Rohit Shetty pulled it off well. And when it’s Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu and Goa locales mixed with songs and comedy of errors, it does work.

Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani
Rajkumar Santoshi returned to comedy in this frothy, breezy rom-com starring Ranbir as a goofy but adorable boy who makes others happy at the cost of his own feelings. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani also marked a beginning for the stunning on-screen pair, Ranbir and Katrina Kaif.

If you think he should retire, think again, Amitabh Bachchan is still around and here to stay. Paa not just tugged at our hearts, but Big B’s stellar performance left almost everyone spellbound. Moreover, Amitabh’s makeover into a 12-year-old progeric boy was a huge feat in itself.

3 Idiots
Straight from the college campus comes Aamir Khan as an ‘idiot’ for 3 Idiots. The movie marks the end of 2009. Aamir has even tried some unique promotional strategy for the film – traveling incognito throughout India and revealing his identity only rarely.

Sania mirza to quit Tennis after Marriage
India’s most successful female tennis player Sania Mirza on Thursday revealed that she will hang up her racquet after getting married.

Sania, who got engaged to childhood friend Sohrab Mirza in July 2009, did not elaborate when she plans to marry but said she will bid adieu to the game after tying the nuptial knot.

“As of now, I don’t intend to play professionally after marriage but that is still some time away,” Sania said.

Before getting engaged to the Indian tennis diva, Sohrab had said that Sania will have complete freedom in making her career decisions.

“She has my complete support and backing in whatever she wishes. It is completely her decision for how long she wishes to play,” Sohrab had said in June.

So when asked if it was purely her decision to quit the game after marriage, Sania’s father Imran Mirza said, “It’s her decision for now. If later she decides to play after marriage, its her choice.”

Ever since turning pro in 2003, Sania has been the face of Indian tennis on the WTA circuit.

She also became India’s first female Grand Slam winner when she won the Australian Open mixed doubles title with compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi last year.

Sania’s start to the 2010 season though was far from impressive as she lost in the second round of the Auckland event, followed by a first round defeat at the Hobart event but the Hyderabadi is hardly perturbed.

“I think after competing for seven years as a professional and ranked five years in the singles top-100, I’ve reached a stage in my career where my performance cannot be judged on the basis of one or a few tournaments,” she said.

“Wins and losses are part of the game and in a truly global sport like tennis where more than 220 countries compete seriously, except for the top-10 players, nobody wins too consistently,” Sania added.

All that the Indian wants now is to stay away from injuries in the new season. Her wrist injury in 2008 had forced her to spend half the year out of court.

“I am approaching 2010 like any other year. I expect to continue to work hard, try my very best and leave the rest to God. I would like to stay away from any serious injuries during 2010,” she said.

Talking about the year gone by, Sania says she is happy with the way she performed in 2009 although there were only a few moments of glory for her.

Apart from the triumph at the Australian Open which was followed by the final appearance in Pattaya and a win over Shahar Peer were the only high points of Sania’s stay on the tour, last season.

However, the Indian said after losing many a weeks due to pain, the results achieved were satisfactory.

“As a matter of fact, I did play the semifinals in singles in Birmingham and Osaka and won an ITF title in USA besides making the final of a USD 100,000 event in Canada.

“I had singles wins over players like Bartoli and Shahar Peer. Apart from this, I won a doubles title in Ponte Vedra Beach.

“I finished at a singles ranking of 57 after having dropped to the 120’s following my wrist injury. I also had to skip several weeks due to the niggling pain. So, under the circumstances, I’m reasonably happy with my performance,” she said. PTI
