Sania Mirza has the persistence to be quiet on the court and throughout the years has developed her identity to quiets individuals down when a stray inquiry comes her direction. What's more, in the wake of wording her profession in her collection of memoirs titled 'Expert Against Odds', she put words on standard media to hit back at TV writer Rajdeep Sardesai for a se%ist inquiry.
On air with Sardesai, Mirza was addressed about motherhood and settling down, an inquiry she didn't take too delicately. The famous grapple at last recognized it wasn't something he may ask a male competitor. The trade happened in the accompanying way.
Sardesai: Amidst all the celebrityhood, when is Sania going to settle down? Is it going to be in Dubai? Is it going to be in any other country? What about motherhood… building a family… I don't see all that in the book, it seems like you don't want to retire just yet to settle down
Mirza: You don't think I'm settled?
Sardesai: You don't talk about retirement, about raising a family, about motherhood, what's life beyond tennis is going to be…
Mirza: You sound disappointed that I'm not choosing motherhood over being number one in the world at this point of time. But I'll answer your question anyway, that's the question I face all the time as a woman, that all women have to face — the first is marriage and then it's motherhood. Unfortunately, that's when we're settled, and no matter how many Wimbledons we win or number ones in the world we become, we don't become settled. But eventually it will happen, not right now. And when it does happen I'll be the first one to tell everybody when I plan to do that.
Sardesai: I must apologise, I framed that question very badly. I promise you, you're right, I would never ask this question to a male athlete…
Mirza: I'm so glad, you're the first journalist to apologise to me on national television.
