Indian tennis star Sania Mirza has become engaged to 23-year-old Sohrab Mirza, a business scholar from her hometown of Hyderabad.
The 22-year-old Sania, now ranked only 95th in the world, is not planning to stop playing competitive tennis, just as her fiancé wants to pursue higher studies. Their marriage will therefore not take place in the near future.
Sania is a youth icon in her country after she became the first Indian to win a WTA title and break into the world’s Top 50 in 2005. (source: Reuters, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
