While congratulating Sania Mirza on her illustrious career, in which she demonstrated that “more women can pursue tennis and flourish in it”. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “the world witnessed a glimpse of India’s sporting power in your excellence. Sania, who finished her career with six Grand Slam victories, said goodbye to the sport last month in Dubai, where she competed in her last competition.
The letter, dated March 9, was published by Sania on her twitter account.
The prime minister congratulated Sania and said she had made an everlasting impression on Indian athletics. Encouraging the next generation of athletes.
Tennis enthusiasts would find it difficult to comprehend that you won’t be competing professionally moving forward, Modi wrote.
“Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodi Ji, I want to thank you for your warm and motivating remarks. I’ve always taken tremendous satisfaction in doing the best I can to represent my nation. I’ll keep working hard to make India proud. I appreciate your help “Sania, a former No. 1 in the world in doubles, stated.
Sania’s victory, according to the PM, gave every Indian reason to be proud.
“When you posted a “Life Update” on January 13, you beautifully described your transformation from a young child who had to physically struggle to get to the (tennis) courts to a world-class tennis player over the following years. You claimed that winning medals for India had been your greatest honour. I can confidently state that you are India’s pride, whose triumph has brought the greatest happiness to every Indian, “Modi penned.
The PM also recalled Sania’s turbulent period, during which a wrist injury nearly ended her career and prevented her from becoming a formidable double player.
You had to deal with injuries because of unfortunate circumstances, but these setbacks only reinforced your resolve, and you triumphed over these difficulties with flying colours.
Modi hoped Sania will continue coaching upcoming athletes. Royal Challengers Bangalore of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) just hired Sania as their coach.
