  • Sania Mirza becomes first Indian to win Fed Cup Heart Award donates prize money to Covid-19 fight

The Fed Cup Heart Award is an International Tennis Federation (ITF) initiative that was established in 2009 to recognise those Fed Cup players who represent their countries with distinction, show exceptional courage on the court, and demonstrate outstanding commitment to the ideals of the competition.

Taking to Twitter, Sania wrote: "It's an honor to win the Fed cup Heart award as the first Indian and first person from the subcontinent".

She is also the first Indian to win the award.

"It's an honour to win the Fed Cup Heart Award as the first Indian", Mirza, who was also India's first Heart Award nominee, was quoted as saying on Fed Cup's official website. Fans are at the heart of Fed Cup so to be chosen by the fans as a victor of an award that recognises the competition's values of team work, courage and national pride is extra special for the players. "These values, and all the players nominated for the Fed Cup Heart Award, are what make Fed Cup such a unique and special competition".
