By Sujoy Roy | AITA
India’s most accomplished woman tennis player, Sania Mirza bids adieu to Wimbledon after her semi-final defeat in the mixed doubles. Sania and her Croatian partner Mate Pavic ended the tournament in despair after they bow down 6-4 5-7 4-6 to the defending champion Neil Skupski and Desirae Krawczyk in Semis.
The 35 years Indian Tennis star has earlier announced that she would hang up the racquet after the 2022 season.
Her Wimbledon journey started at the junior level back in 2001 and ended in 2022 with heartbreak in the mixed doubles semi-final. A journey that lasted for 21 years…! 21 years of Love, Passion, Joy, Tears, Perseverance, Grit, dedication, and Consistency.
Her career is great learning for all the young athletes there. Because it can teach them to hope again, no matter how tough their year had been or how much they have lost or gained. It can teach them to believe that miracle does happen, they just need to continue that work that this game craves from them. It can rejuvenate bonds a, most importantly leaves them with the note of resurrection. It will knock them at their weakest point just to introspect more. It will teach them to fix those pieces before they start again. It can teach them to let go of a few things and adore whatever they have before moving on to n a new adventure. It can teach them the void of something which can be described. It can teach them that an athlete never loses or wins, they always learn.
A total of six Grand Slam titles Sania Mirza won so far, including three mixed doubles. Had Sania won the mixed doubled title at the 2022 Wimbledon, she would have completed a Career Slam in mixed doubles.
In 2015 she won the Women’s Doubles title at Wimbledon, pairing with Martina Hingis.
