Sania Mirza sets up to end her quite a remarkable career in international tennis, two things immediately come to mind. First, it has been a quiet run for the Indian tennis star that she began playing Grand Slam tennis at the age of 18, in Melbourne in 2005 and has been a viable competitor for so long. The second and much less flattering point is that this does not at all reflect on tennis in India that the senior players have not been replaced with any conviction by any of the younger lot.
The Indian tennis player who won 6 grand slams and reached the Summit of the WTO doubles ranking is also the first Indian to break into the top 30 in the WTA singles ranking. Major as India’s most accomplished women’s tennis player.
Sania Mirza is the winner of 6 Grand Slams, including three mixed doubles trophies. Ending an Era she will retire as India’s most accomplished women’s tennis player.
Let’s know what Tennis Star Sania Mirza said about her retirement.
While talking about retirement, 5-year-old Mirza said that there are a few reasons for it. She feels that her recovery is taking longer and that she is putting her 3-year-old son at risk by travelling so much with him. She also added that she thinks that her body is wearing down and her energy is not the same anymore. She always maintains that she will play until she enjoys that grind, the process which she is not sure she is enjoying as much anymore.
Most people in India, if d to name three players who have represented the country in tennis, would come to a grinding halt after one name- Sania Mirza.
It is not like they have not been others beginning from Nirupama vaidyanatam Manisha Malhotra’s write down to the present day with names like Riya Bhatia Ritu Ja Bhosle Ankita Raina, do not ring bells.
Nor does karma lair Than do, who at one stage promised to be the next big thing in Indian tennis.
Not that the men’s side is doing any better from the hoary days of Ramanathan Krishan, Premjit Lal and Akhtar Ali to when Vijay Amritraj became the star and also he set up a formidable doubles partnership with brother Anand. Then, and even in the days of Ramesh Krishna, India was viable as a tennis entity and three Davis cup finals attest to that.
