Sania Mirza announces retirement from tennis

Indian tennis star Sania Mirza Wednesday announced her plan to retire from the sport after finishing the current season, NDTV reported.

Per the report, Sania and her Ukrainian partner, Nadiia Kichenok, suffered an opening-round loss in the women’s doubles event of the ongoing Australian Open.

“There’s a few [sic] reasons for it. It’s not as simple as ‘okay I’m not going to play’. I do feel my recovery is taking longer, I’m putting my 3-year-old son at risk by travelling so much with him, that’s something I have to take into account. I think my body is wearing down,” the 35-year-old said.

“My knee was really hurting today and I’m not saying that’s the reason we lost but I do think that it is taking time to recover as I’m getting older,” said Mirza on Wednesday.
