Sania Mirza gave birth to Izhaan in Hyderabad on October 30. She is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. They tied the knot on April 12 2010. They named the baby boy ‘Izhaan' which in Urdu means God's gift.

Sania sustained an injury in her right knee in October 2017 and has been on rehabilitation since then. Owing to this, she missed the year's first Grand Slam i.e. the Australian Open. After undergoing surgery, she extended her break from action confirming news of her pregnancy. She also confirmed that Izhaan's surname would be Mirza Malik and his nationality would be neither Pakistani nor Indian.

Sania has confirmed her comeback to the tennis court during the autumn of 2019 on the sidelines of Tokyo Olympics-2020.

There have been famous comebacks of sorts in tennis. Former world number 1 Kim Clijsters came out of retirement in 2008, a year after having a baby daughter. American superstar and 23-time Grand Slam titles winner Serena Williams won the 2017 Australian Open when she was few weeks into pregnancy.
