In a country where cricket is a religion, Sania Mirza made tennis famous. As the world tennis number one in doubles, she is one of the highest-paid athletes in India.”When you’re a woman you have to fight a lot harder,” she says. “It has nothing to do with India, it has nothing to do with this side of the world. It’s to do with the world.”

Despite her success the one question she faces repeatedly is, “when are you going to have children?”She spoke to the BBC’s Yogita Limaye as part of the BBC’s 100 Women Series about the pressure she faces as a female athlete.
