Earlier this year, Sania had said at an event that she wanted a daughter whenever she decides to start a family. She then said she would want her child’s surname to be ‘Mirza Malik’.

“Today I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about ti and we have decided that whenever we a child, the child will have Mirza Malik as a surname,” explained the tennis star during a panel discussion on ‘gender bias’ at the Goa Fest 2018. “So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter.”

The duo hit the headlines in the year 2010 when they announced their marriage. Malik is a former Pakistani cricket captain while Sania Mirza is India's most decorated female tennis player ever. She ended 2016 as the world's top ranked doubles female tennis player and has three doubles and three mixed doubles Grand Slam titles to her name.
