In a surprising turn of events, Sania Mirza’s family has officially confirmed the separation of the Indian tennis icon and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. This revelation comes just a day after Malik announced his second marriage to actor Sana Javed.
The couple, who tied the knot in April 2010 in Mirza’s hometown of Hyderabad, had been subject to long-standing rumors and speculation regarding their strained relationship. The 41-year-old Malik shared a picture of his wedding with Sana on social media platforms, marking the end of their high-profile union that had captivated sports enthusiasts in both India and Pakistan.
In a statement issued by Mirza’s family on Sunday, they disclosed, “Sania has always kept her personal life away from the public eye. However, today the need has arisen for her to share that Shoaib and she have been divorced for a few months now. She wishes Shoaib well for his new journey ahead!”
“At this sensitive period of her life, we would like to request all fans and well-wishers to refrain from indulging in any speculation and to respect her need for privacy,” the statement emphasized.
Rumors about the couple’s troubled marriage had gained momentum recently when Malik unfollowed Mirza, 37, on Instagram, triggering further speculation about their marital discord.
The couple shares a five-year-old son named Izaan, who is currently living with Mirza. The tennis star, in a recent Instagram post, alluded to personal struggles, stating, “Marriage is hard, Divorce is hard. Choose your hard. Life will never be easy. I will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely.”
Celebrated as one of India’s greatest tennis players, Sania Mirza announced her retirement from professional tennis last year after an illustrious career spanning two decades. Mirza had secured six Grand Slam titles in doubles and mixed doubles throughout her career. As both individuals embark on new chapters in their lives, the public is left to reflect on the challenges and complexities of high-profile relationships in the public eye.
