10 Best Sports Photos of the Week!

Last updated on: July 13, 2015 17:53 IST

This last week was one of the best for Indian tennis, with veterans Leander Paes and Sania Mirza winning the Wimbledon mixed-doubles and doubles (Switzerland's Martina Hingis partnered both of them) respectively, and, the newest kid on the block, Sumit Nagal clinching the Wimbledon junior boys doubles (with partner Nam Hoang Ly) title on Sunday.

The other major highlights of the week included England's victory in the first Ashes Test on Saturday and earlier, the first Indian Super League Player Auction was held with much fanfare.
