Sania Mirza announces her retirement!

A career to look upon!

Sania Mirza, India’s top tennis player, announced on Wednesday that 2022 will be her final season on the WTA tour after losing in the first round of the Australian Open’s women’s doubles event with her Ukrainian partner Nadiia Kichenok.

“There are several reasons for this. It’s not as simple as saying, “OK, I’m not going to play.” “I do feel like my recovery is taking longer, and I’m putting my three-year-old son at risk by travelling so much with him, which is something I have to consider,” Mirza said after her match.

“I believe my body is worsening. “My knee was really hurting today, and I’m not saying that’s why we lost, but I do believe it’s taking longer to recover as I get older,” she added.

Mirza has been on the professional tour since 2003, and has been at the top of her game for the past 19 years. She has six Grand Slam titles and was a former world No.1 in Doubles. Mirza had a successful singles career, reaching a high of world No. 27 in mid-2007, making her the highest-ranked female player from India
