Sania Mirza and former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar got into a bit of a heated exchange on Twitter on Wednesday after the tennis star tweeted about her reign as the world’s top-ranked doubles player a day earlier.

On Tuesday, Sania Mirza celebrated completing 80 straight weeks as the number one women’s doubles player with a tweet.

Several well-known personalities and fans congratulated her on the achievement, and Manjrekar was one of them. Additionally, he also pointed out that Mirza hadn’t clarified that the No. 1 ranking was in doubles.

Mirza, who began participating exclusively in doubles since 2013 after being unable to cope with the physical rigours of singles, pointed out somewhat sarcastically that the doubles aspect of her tweet ought to have been understood, given she doesn’t play singles anymore. She did thank Manjrekar, however.

Manjrekar wasn’t done, however, and the exchange went back and forth for a while.
