The tweet speculated the news of her being pregnant but needed a confirmation. When contacted her coach, Imran, by PTI, he confirmed the news of Sania’s pregnancy by nodding, “Yes, it’s true,”. She is expected to deliver her first child in October this year. Sania Mirza who has married a Pakistani cricketer and former Pakistan cricket team skipper, Shoaib Malik, has already expressed her wish to take her surname forward.

In a panel discussion on ‘gender bias’ in Goa Fest 2018, Mirza had said, “Today I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, the child will have Mirza-Malik as a surname and not just Malik. So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter,”
The six time Grand Slam champion has recently celebrated her eighth marriage anniversary on April 12. The 31-year old beautiful Indian tennis player, Sania Mirza, had suffered jumper knee issue in October 2017 and is out of action since then. She did desire to comeback with the French open this year but considering her pregnancy, her participation looks difficult. The French Open is scheduled to start from May 21 and end on June 10 at Roland Garros, Paris, France.
