We hope that the British Government will allow the child to travel with Sania. ‘

Let me tell you that Sania played a match in March this year after almost 12 months, in which she made a great comeback and won. She then teamed up with her Slovak partner Andreja Klepak to beat the Ukraine duo of Nadia Kitchenok and Lyudmila Kitchenok to advance to the women’s doubles quarter-finals of the Qatar Total Open Tennis tournament. She last played at the Doha Open in February 2020, after which tennis tournaments were postponed worldwide due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Sania herself has recovered from Corona virus infection in January this year.
