Telangana government Thursday presented Rs.1 crore to tennis star Sania Mirza for training and to meet other expenses to participate in upcoming Japan and China open tennis tournaments.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao presented the cheque to her and expressed his best wishes for her victory in both the tournaments. This has made Sania richer by Rs.2 crore in less than two months. The chief minister had presented her Rs.1 crore cheque before she left for the US Open in July.
On her return to the city Sunday, she dedicated her victory to Telangana. She also called on Rao Tuesday.
The Telangana government in July appointed the tennis star as Telangana’s brand ambassador.
