Hyderabad: Ace tennis Sania Mirza, who became the first Indian woman to be crowned as the world's top-ranked doubles tennis player, hopes that her feat would encourage youth to take up sports as a career.

"It's an amazing feeling. It's great to come back home being the number one. To achieve this after putting in a lot of work and sacrifice, it's really good," Sania told reporters in a rousing reception in her home city.

The 28-year-old, who was named amongst the ‘50 heroes of Asia’ in 2005, is expected to be seen in action in the Fed cup event, this evening.
