Sania Mirza On par with Rahul Dravid

India teen tennis sensation Sania Mirza is on par with The Wall of Indian cricket Rahul Dravid in what ??
Well they both earn approximately 1.5 crores of rupees per annum through endorsements.
Sania's ad revenue has risen by a whopping 30% which is understandable given the fact she had a meteoric rise to rank 40 from somewhere in the 200s in less than a year.But being on par with Dravid who has been a cricket star for few years now in India where cricket is a religion, may raise a few eyebrows.But probably the fact that Sania is now a global lady sport star from India and the primary spenders in India are women her case stands justified.

But at least I am happy that in India apart from Cricket something else is being paid attention to. Of course though we are good in Chess, Billiard and a few other games/sports cricket was above all.. I hope sania changes that.

True that cricket gets the maximum interest.but the point i wanted to make was the individual attention received which is bound to happen nevertheless.well all other sports have to be funded and marketed well.
