While speaking recently at a panel discussion on ‘Gender Bias’ in the on-going Goa Fest 2018, the tennis player had announced that she will keep her child’s surname as ‘Mirza Malik’ and expressed her desire to take her family’s name forward.

“We are two sisters and have never wished that we had a brother. I have had fights with my uncles and aunts, who talk about it or come up and tell my parents that they should have had a son. For us, daughters are daughters and there was nothing like wanting a son to carry the family name forward,” Sania had said at the panel discussion.

“I have not changed my surname (post marriage) and my name is still Sania Mirza and it will remain that way. The family name is going to go forward,” she had added.
