India’s tennis player Sania Mirza got married to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik in 2010. Mirza, who made a name for herself in both singles and doubles not long ago talked about her connection with the former Pakistan skipper, before the two got married, in a Facebook chat with Sportskeeda.
“Our relationship is very fun. I think that’s the first time people got to see what it really is. We both like to keep it pretty light, and I think it the first time that everybody got to see he is the more talkative one than I am, contrary to the belief in the world,” Mirza said.
Both of them are sportspersons who take a lot of pride in representing their respective nations Sania Mirza talked about the banter she had with Shoaib Malik, when they were dating, about supporting India.
“For some reason, he loved to play against India. So, when we were dating, whenever we spoke about it, I always used to say, ‘I’ll support India no matter what. And then he used to say, ‘My record against India I want to tell you is the best that I have.’ He’s been around for a long time and I think he has had an amazing career. I am really proud of him,” she said.
Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik has a two-year-old son Izhaan.
