Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza celebrated her 34th birthday with husband Shoaib Malik and son Izhaan in Karachi on Sunday (November 15).
Sania married former Pakistan skipper Shoaib in 2010 and became proud parents of their first child in 2018. In January this year, she made a comeback in tennis and won the WTA Hobart International doubles title with her Ukrainian partner Nadiia Kichenok.
On Sania’s special day, Shoaib surprised his wife by arranging a birthday party at the Karachi National Stadium; the video of it soon went viral on social media.

I had the most amazing time with family and friends… and thank you to @realshoaibmalik for the amazing surprise.”
Until Sania retired from singles in 2013, she was India’s No. 1 ranked player in Women’s Tennis. Now, a doubles specialist, Sania has also been honoured with the Arjuna Award, Padma Shri, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna and the Padma Bhushan Award.
