Sania had spoken to the media after announcing her plans to retire later this year.
“I’m feeling exactly the same way. I think it came as a shock to everyone and later I said that honestly, I shouldn’t have announced it (about retiring at the end of the season).
I should have come closer to the end of the year and announced it because everyone got really emotional,” Sania told the media.
“I have received a lot of messages and for me tennis will always be a very important part of my life.
I am grateful for my memories and achievements. I plan to finish at the end of the year, but I am in it. “One hundred percent and it’s a long year ahead,” Sania said.
