Sania Mirza talks about the difficult life of an athlete

Indian tennis star Sania Mirza talks about the difficult life of an athlete and wants the world to know about it.

Taking to Instagram, Sania wrote a long heartfelt note in which she spoke about the pressure, expectations, heartbreak, triumph, and pain an athlete has to go through.

Sania, who is also the wife of former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik, posted the emotional note after she lost in the ongoing US Open.

Her US Open 2021 journey stopped after she and her partner Rajeev Ram lost in the opening round at the Flushing Meadows in New York Friday.

The Indo-American duo lost to Australia’s Max Purcell and Ukraine’s Dayana Yastremska by 6-3, 3-6, 10-7.

“An athlete’s life is filled with heartbreak and triumph day after day, week after week .. it’s filled tears and laughter..with pain and hard work..with injuries and finding the strength to get back from them,” she wrote.

She said that “every time you enter the court you have the pressure to perform your very best.”

The Indian tennis star highlighted the doubt and anger one feels about not winning. “We pick ourselves up after a tough loss and work harder, we wipe off the tears and we sweat more ..the team and family does all that with you, the emotion and joy, the tears, the pain, the sweat, and blood is all real and something we go through every day,” she wrote.

She further added that playing at the highest level is a decision and a privilege. Belief is the only thing that keeps the athletes going.

She said that the most important thing is to come up every day and to give your everything.

She concluded her note with a special mention of her fans, family, and friends, whose support, she said, she is “forever grateful for”.
