Reason Behind Sania Mirza’s Retirement

In one of her recent interviews, she revealed that one of the main motivations for stepping away from the sport was to spend more time with her son, Izhaan. She expressed her joy in being able to devote quality time to her son, while also remaining engaged in various other pursuits such as managing tennis academies in India and Dubai, as well as broadcasting and TV appearances.

“Honestly one of the main reasons to retire from tennis was to try to spend more time with my son. Which I am being able to do, which I really like. I still work. I have my tennis academy back in India in Hyderabad. I have a few tennis academies in Dubai, I shuttle a lot. I have also been doing a lot of broadcasting and TV. That’s how I keep myself busy but I dont keep myself that busy because one of my reasons to retire was to be with my son,” Sania said.
