Tennis Sensation and wife of Pakistani Cricketer Shoaib Malik, Sania Mirza has penned down an emotional ode to all mothers who dare to dream and try to balance their careers.
Taking to her Instagram, Sania Mirza revealed that she was inspired by an American professional tennis player and former world No. 1 in women’s single-tennis, Serena Jameka Williams.
“Serena Williams your story has inspired me to pen this letter. The #BeingSerena echoes my experience and that of women worldwide who everyday balance family and personal goals,” the young mother wrote on the photo-sharing app.
Sania Mirza disclosed about her early days of pregnancy and the efforts she had to put in to get back to her form as per the requirement of her profession.
“Just like her [Serena], pregnancy is something that I had experienced for the first time in my life. I thought about it and I think we all have a certain picture about it, but, once you experience it, you really understand what it means. It absolutely changes you as a human being,”
Sania Mirza mentioned that getting back to shape and form can be ‘challenging’ and she can relate to the struggles endured by her fellow tennis player, Serena.
“I wasn’t sure if I was ever going back to being fit and playing tennis again. However, I lost around 26 kilos with a lot of workout regimes and very strict diets and came back to Tennis because that is what I know, love, and do.”
