Among India-born women, I think it's worth mentioning Laxmi Poruri, born in Guntur (Andhra Pradesh), who reached as high as 110 in the singles rankings and 85 in the doubles rankings. Of course, she famously won the Orange Bowl beating Monica Seles in the final, and played in the second round of the US Open at the age of 15.
