With less than 10 days to go for the 2020 Summer Olympics, the six-time Grand Slam champion and former doubles World Number 1, Sania Mirza, can’t keep calm. On Wednesday, Sania was seen flaunting India’s Olympic kit for the 2020 Tokyo Games in her new Instagram video. The most celebrated Indian tennis star also took this opportunity to educate her followers on what ‘A’ in her name stands for.
“The ‘A’ in my name stands for so much in my life," Sania wrote in the caption section of her post. The footage starts with Sania grooving on America’s rapper Doja Cat’s latest number ‘kiss me more’. After that, Sania winked as a montage made of her pictures starts playing.
In the first snap, Sania could be seen celebrating in a white t-shirt. In the next one, she could be seen holding the Indian flag and then a trophy. The clip concluded with a photograph of Sania with her two-year-old son Izhaan Mirza Malik. In the clip, Sania also explained that A stands for “Aggression, Ambition, Achieve and Affection."
