One of India’s greatest tennis players ever will hang her boots at the WTA 1000 Dubai Tennis Championships to be played from 19th to 26th February, 2023. Mirza was supposed to retire at the end of the 2022 season, but an elbow injury ruled her out of the 2022 US Open.
“I was going to stop right after the WTA Finals, because we were going to make the WTA Finals, but I tore my tendon in my elbow right before the US Open so I had to pull out of everything,” Sania told wtatennis.com.
“And honestly, the person that I am, I like to do things on my own terms. So I don’t want to be forced out by injury. So I’ve been training. The plan is to try and retire in Dubai during the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships,” she added.
