The 42 year old Leander Paes has stunned his audience worldwide, winning his third Grand Slam title of the year.  After his epic victory with Martina Hingis in US Open Mixed Doubles, Paes simply said, “My whole life has been about perseverance. About just trying to find a way to succeed.”

Such are the legends, Paes will always make it to the list of greatest Indian Sportspersons with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar.

It has turned out  to be a great year for Sania as well.  With her Swiss partner Martina Hingis, she has bagged her second consecutive Grand Slam title of the season and fifth overall.
