Mirza achieved her highest singles ranking of 27 in 2007, but her singles career was cut short due to a string of injuries. She retired from the singles in 2013 and had established herself as one of the most successful tennis-doubles player.

Mirza is quite active on social media and usually interacts with her fans on the social media platform. Mirza just like all the Indians is a huge fan of arguably the greatest batsman of all time Sachin Tendulkar. In a live interaction with the fans on Twitter, a fan named Haris asked Sania, “Favorite cricketer? ( besidesMalik of course)”

To which Mirza replied, “Sachin Tendulkar”.

Sachin made his debut for the Indian team on 15th November 1989 at the age of 16 against Pakistan in Karachi and played his last Test against West Indies on 14th November 2013 and finished with 34,347 international runs.
