Meanwhile, Mirza, who has won six Grand Slam doubles titles, including the 2015 Wimbledon doubles with Martina Hingis, is currently out of action due to a jumper knee problem since October last year and even she is yet to confirm about her return to the game after her pregnancy.
As per reports in AFP, Sania said in a statement, “We are soon to become parents. Having thought about it for a while, we both felt right now is the correct time to start a family. When we found out, we were ecstatic and couldn’t wait to give out this news to our fans and well-wishers. We are very excited to enter this new phase of our lives and look forward to our journey as parents.”
The 31-year-old married Malik back in 2010 in Hyderabad, and this is their first child after their eight years wedding.
