After a two-year-long hiatus from the world of tennis, six-time Grand Slam Champion and former Doubles World No. 1, Sania Mirza made a winning comeback to competitive tennis at the Hobart International 2020.

The Indo-Ukrainian couple will compete against Americans Vania King and Christina McHale next.

Both teams converted three breakpoints each when the set went into a tie-break, in which Sania and Kichenok called in front of their opponents to draw.

In the quarter-final, Mirza and Kichenok will take on United States of America pair Vania King and Christina McHale. Returning to the tennis subject after 2 years, Sania and Ukrainian associate Nadia Kitchenok have overwhelmed the pair of Okasana Kalashnikova of Georgia and Miyu Keto of Japan brilliantly.

She reached the fourth round of the US Open in the same year, and by 2007 was among the women's top 30.


After clinching the win, Sania Mirza shared an adorable picture with her son, in which she can be seen giving a high-five to him.

She took to social media to share that she was delighted to have her family and son support her as she played women's doubles at the Hobart International on Tuesday.

As for her next opponent in the ongoing tournament, she, along with Kichenok, would be facing the United States pair of Christina McHale and Vania King.

However, she has also been hampered by career-threatening wrist and knee injuries.
