Ms Mirza

The US Open of Tennis is in progress.

One delightful surprise of the opening rounds is the success of a player from India, Sania Mirza. She was just interviewed and for a while the questioning centred on her (Islamic) religion. She asked, quite fairly, why the other players don't get asked about their religions, and even more rightly. declined to say much more on that subject.

She plays in traditional tennis attire, and plays well. Few things would delight me more than her doing very very well at this championship and serving as a great example to young women in India and the Muslim world.
