Now, even as the player was all set to play in the US Open, she has informed her fans that she has injured her arm, and will therefore have to abstain from playing. She wrote, “Hi guys.. A quick update. I just have some not-so-great news. I hurt my forearm/elbow while playing in Canada 2 weeks ago and obviously didn’t realize how bad it was until I got my scans yesterday and unfortunately I have infact torn a little bit of my tendon. I will be out for a weeks and have pulled out of US Open. This isn’t idea and it’s terrible timing and it will change some of my retirement plans, but I will keep you all posted. Love, Sania,” on her Insta story.
Sania gave birth to her son on October 30, 2018, with her husband, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Mallik taking to social media to announce the arrival of their baby.
