Sania Mirza reels: Sania Mirza, a six-time Grand Slam winner, has greeted her fans and followers with another fun video on her social media.
“The ‘A’ in my name stands for soooo much in my life,” she wrote sharing a reel on Instagram on Wednesday while dancing on a popular number Kiss Me More by Doja Cat feat. SZA. In the video, Mirza can be seen sharing a powerful message. The ace Tennis player revealed the ‘A’ in her name stands for “Aggression, Ambition, Achieve and Affection”.
Singer and Songwriter, Ananya Birla was one of the first persons to comment on her post. She said, “I like the dance moves, especially the wink, congrats ya good stuff.” Mirza’s moves are making fans go crazy on the photo-sharing app. The video, so far, has garnered more than 35,580 likes and loads of comments with heart emojis.
Representing the country in Tokyo Olympics, kickstarting on July 23, Mirza recently got done playing at Wimbledon where she was paired with Rohan Bopanna in the all-Indian mixed doubles team. The duo, however, went down 11-9 in a thrilling third-round match last week. It was her last tournament before the big Games where she will compete in the women’s doubles with athlete Ankita Raina.
This will mark Mirza’s fourth Olympics appearance while Raina will be playing the first of her career. While interacting with the athletes representing India internationally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday talked to Mirza about her preparations for the forthcoming event and her sports journey so far.
When Modi interacted with the Olympic-bound contingent, he also asked Mirza about her take on the efforts put into becoming the ultimate champion in Tennis. Mirza, who picked up the racket over 25 years ago when Tennis was not a popular sport, noted, “Now young children believe they can become big players in tennis.” The 34-year-old believed that having a support system, hard work and perseverance will get any player to the heights of their professional career.

Sania Mirza’s comeback at the Hobart in January 2020 and the Australian Open the same year is marked as an achievement since she stepped into the court after almost a two-year maternity break.
She became the first Indian to win the Fed Cup Heart Award for her successful return to the court post motherhood. The professional tennis player often gives her fans a glimpse of her training sessions but also posts regular updates from her life featuring her husband Shoaib Malik, son Izhaan Mirza Malik.
