First Indian woman to be seeded in a Grand Slam. Long before the big four events started having 32 seeds, Ramanathan Krishnan was the first Indian to be seeded in a Slam, seeded fourth at Wimbledon in 1961.

Sania’s 2007 record

25-14: Win-Loss

$273, 100: Prize Money

Grand Slams this year

2nd round at Australian Open (lost to Nakamura)

2nd round at French Open (lost to No. 7 Ana Ivanovic)

2nd round at Wimbledon (lost to No. 11 Nadia Petrova)

Being seeded at the US Open will help her avoid the seeded players in the initial rounds.

Best this year

6 best showings this year (at least a quarterfinal show) have mostly been on hardcourts.

Twice at Tier IV events; once at Tier III, once each at Tier II and Tier I events

Big fish
