Shoaib Malik Pens Touching Farewell Note For Wife Sania Mirza

Melbourne: Pakistan cricketer and the husband of Indian tennis star Sania Mirza, Shoaib Malik praised Sania and expressed his pride in her performance at the Australian Open.

Mirza and Rohan Bopanna lost in straight sets to Luisa Stefani and Rafael Matos of Brazil in the mixed doubles final, ending their illustrious run in Melbourne.

Sania Mirza, 36, had an incredible run at the Australian Open, where she had previously won her first Grand Slam doubles title in 2009. Despite falling short of collecting her seventh Grand Slam doubles title, Sania Mirza came up short.

14 years after winning the mixed doubles title with Mahesh Bhupati, Sania gave her another chance, this time partnering with her countryman Rohan Bopanna. The seasoned team, however, failed at the last obstacle.

Sania finished her Grand Slam career with three women’s doubles titles and the same number in mixed doubles. Prior to the competition in Melbourne, the famous athlete had declared that this would be her final Grand Slam appearance.

Sania will compete in two more events in the United Arab Emirates before retiring. In February, Sania will compete in Abu Dhabi alongside Bethanie Mattek Sands and then wrap things up at Dubai, a WTA 1000 competition, alongside Madison Keys.

Malik took to Twitter to laud his wife and said that she was the much-needed inspiration for all female athletes. He gushed about how proud he was of her and how Mirza was a role model for many.

” You are the much needed hope for all the women in sports. Super proud of you for all you have achieved in your career. You’re an inspiration for many, keep going strong. Many congratulations on an unbelievable career…” Malik tweeted.

Mirza said she was thrilled to play the final in front of her son, despite the fact that she lost on Friday.

I never imagined that I would be able to compete in a Grand Slam final in front of my child, Mirza remarked, adding that her family was in the stands.
