Indian Tennis star Sania Mirza claims that Indian sports need to be levelled up. She feels that India needs to be a sporting nation overall. From the beginning, Indian sports are flourishing day by day. Tennis is obviously one of them. Sania Mirza says that "At the end of the day we should be very proud of all our athletes because there is a lot of challenge that goes into it. Not just winning a medal but reaching to that level to play at the Olympics… Having said that we are very proud of all medal winners and all our athletes."(Via Hindustantimes)
The Indian continent finished with seven medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which was their best ever outing at the quadrennial event. Even in the Paralympics, the nation amassed a total of 17 medals – their best tally by quite some margin. But after the events end the craze about the Olympics fades away. That's the main concern of the 34 years aged sportstar Sania Mirza. She also added that the schools should encourage the children more for their field of interest.

"We need to make our mentality into a sporting mentality and believe that sports are a very important aspect of our life. It has to be incorporated and only then can we really expect to talk about sporting great nation and win a lot of medals at the Olympics," added Mirza.
She concerns about the fact that every individual should understand the importance of sports. We should motivate and encourage our kids if they have an interest and talent in the sports ground. So that our India wins more awards and ensures a bright future.
