Today is the birthday of Sania Mirza, a Hyderabadi girl who won the Wimbledon Junior Doubles title at the age of 16. Sania was born on 15 November 1986 in Mumbai and today is Sania’s 35th birthday. Let us tell you that Sania has won six Grand Slam titles (three women’s doubles, three mixed doubles) at the age of just 29. She married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. She is now the mother of a son. Actually, Izhaan was born in 2018 and after becoming a mother, Sania has once again returned to international tennis after three years. She then won the Hobart International women’s doubles title with Ukraine’s Nadia Kichenok.
Sania remained a star not only for her good sportsmanship but also because of her personality. Sania has written her autobiography in which she writes, ‘My T-shirt was discussed at Wimbledon, and my nose pin at the US Open. Everything I wore was supposed to be a symbol of rebellion. Maybe the foreign media hadn’t seen a young Indian girl before at this time, or I just didn’t live up to the American ideal of a traditional Indian girl.’ Actually, there was a time when Sania had become a fashion icon.
In fact, Sania’s nose ring also became very popular in India and came to be known as Sania Nose Ring in the market. Sania Mirza was one such player who changed the whole picture of women’s tennis on her own. Whenever people on social media tried to drag Sania during Indo-Pak cricket matches, they responded in their own way and that too remained in the headlines. For now, we wish Sania a very happy birthday.
