Pregnancy no barrier, Sania Mirza plays tennis with baby bump

One would think pregnancy might keep tennis player Sania Mirza off the court, but that’s clearly not happening. In a video shared on Instagram by her sister, Anam Mirza, the siblings are seen engaging in a friendly match


“Getting mom-to-be to hit a few balls,” Anam has captioned her video on Instagram. It shows the sisters enjoying a round of tennis as their father Imran Mirza stands next to the court.

As the two sisters are seen giggling and playing their father Imran Mirza too was there next to the court and advising Anam about “wrong foot”. “@imranmirza58 doesn’t think too much of my tennis skills,” Anam added in the caption, poking fun at her playing style, using hashtag #zerotennisskills.

Recently, she had shared a photo of herself twirling in the court. Dressed in a pale pink gown, the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador for South Asia wrote, “You can take the player off the tennis court for a while … but you can’t take the tennis out of the tennis player ever.”

Sania Mirza is expecting her first child with hubby Shoaib Malik in October, and the Mirza and Malik clan are eagerly waiting for the arrival of their little bundle of joy.
