Good Sports: Sania Mirza Bids Farewell to Wimbledon

Sania Mirza, India’s best female tennis player, is retiring this year from professional tennis. Making her final appearance at Wimbledon, she reached the mixeddoubles semi-finals with her partner Mate Pavić of Croatia.

It was the fifteenth time in her career that she has reached the final four in grand slam doubles. A former world No. 1 in doubles, she has won six grand slam titles: three in women’s doubles and three in mixed doubles. She was also India’s top-ranked singles player from 2003 to 2013, when she retired from singles.

“I am going to miss coming and competing at Wimbledon, but I think it is time to move on,” said Mirza, 35, who has a three-year-old son. “And you have to sort of understand that and acknowledge that there are things that take priority over winning tennis matches and competing in tennis matches, and that’s where I am in life right now.”
