Sania Mirza gives an emotional speech after her retirement
Meanwhile, the six-time Grand Slam winner has announced her retirement from the game. After the announcement, she gave an emotional speech. She said “The journey of my professional career started in Melbourne in 2005 when I played Serena Williams in the third round as an 18-year-old,” an emotional Sania Mirza said in a speech on January 27 after wrapping up her glittering Grand slam career as Australian Open mixed doubles runner-up.
“That was scarily enough 18 years ago and I’ve had the privilege to come back here again and again and win some titles here. Rod Laver Arena has really been special in my life. To play the final, obviously, we couldn’t get over the line, but there’s no better place and no better person to finish my Grand Slam career with.”
