Sania received heartfelt comments from everyone, including Dia Mirza and Riteish Deshmukh, as she sobbed in her post-match interview after losing the Australian Open mixed doubles final on Friday in Melbourne. 

Sania had tears in her eyes as she commenced her speech, “If I cry, these are happy tears. I don't want to take away the moment from Matos-Stefani who have deserved this. I'm still going to play a couple more tournaments but my career started in Melbourne in 2005 when I played Serena as an 18-year-old. I have had the privilege of coming back here again and again and win tournaments here and play some great finals here. Rod Laver Arena has been really special life. I couldn't think of a better arena to finish my last Grand Slam." 

Sania's friend Dia Mirza, who is also from Hyderabad, tweeted a message of support for her. She wrote, “Dearest Sania, watching you play as a child in Nizam Club, to becoming the Champ that you are has been an inspiration and privilege. Congratulations on making girls stronger everywhere. Keep doing good, keep shining. Onwards and upwards.” 


Riteish Deshmukh praised her performance on Friday and referred to her as the GOAT (Greatest Of All Times). He tweeted, "Many congratulations my dear friend @MirzaSania on your glorious career.. you have been an inspiration to a generation- a super achiever that has made every Indian across the globe proud. I wish you only the best for your future endeavours . Much love #SaniaMirza #GOAT." 


Anil Kapoor also tweeted, “Congratulations @MirzaSania on an amazing journey that has left a mark in history and inspired millions of athletes, and thank you for always making India so proud! Wishing you good luck for your next adventure.” 


Sania has six Grand Slam trophies in her trophy case going into her final Major event, including three women's doubles victories and the same number in mixed doubles. Bopanna, 42, has won one mixed doubles match at the French Open.
