The Twitter handle of BBC News (UK) recieved flak on Monday, for forgetting to mention Sania Mirza's name while tweeting about her US open doubles title win with Martina Hingis.
If that wasn't enough, 'US Open 2015: Martina Hingis wins fifth doubles title of year,' was also the headline of the article, sparking off immediate outrage and demands for an apology.
Many Twitter users called BBC 'racist,' while reminding the media outlet that it takes two people to win a doubles match.
This was not the first instance of the BBC forgetting Mirza's name.
BBC India's Twitter handle got into a little trouble in July, after it forgot to mention Sania Mirza's name while tweeting about the women's doubles final win in Wimbledon.
Mirza had teamed up with Martina Hingis then too. The mistake was also pointed out by Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani and a quick apology followed by BBC, put things to rest.
However, unlike its India handle, BBC is yet to issue a correction and the headline still remains the same, at the time of writing.

BBC saved some characters but lost on character by missing out Sania Mirza again in its tweet.â€” Yuvii (@RANTordaas) September 14, 2015
