The 33-year-old last played competitive tennis at the China Open in October 2017. She will team up with Ukraine’s Nadiia Kichenok, ranked 38 in the WTA doubles chart, for the Hobart International.
“I am playing in Hobart, then I am playing the Australian Open,” Sania was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
“I am planning to play a tournament in Mumbai, which is a $25,000 (ITF women’s event) next month, but I am 50-50 about it, so let’s see how my wrist behaves. We will see, but Hobart and Australian Open (for sure).”
Sania added that she had experienced “a lot of change” after having a baby.
On Izhaan’s first birthday, Sania had shared a video of her sister, Anam Mirza, playing with the little boy.
In the video, Izhaan, who is sitting on Anam Mirza’s lap, is seen playing with her ring. “How old are you going to turn?” asks Anam. Izhaan immediately looks up, a beaming smile on his face, and then excitedly raises his index finger, signalling his age.
