Tennis star Sania Mirza, who is due to deliver her first child with Pakistan cricketer husband Shoaib Malik in October, shared this picture with her 4.7 million Instagram users yesterday and captioned it: "You can take the player off the tennis court for a while ... but you can't take the tennis out of the tennis player ever." Cute, na?

In her singles career, Mirza has notable wins over Svetlana Kuznetsova, Vera Zvonareva and Marion Bartoli; as well as former world No. 1 Martina Hingis, Dinara Safina, and Victoria Azarenka. She is the highest-ranked female player ever from India, peaking at world No. 27 in singles in mid-2007; however, a major wrist injury forced her to give up her singles career and focus on the doubles circuit. She has achieved a number of firsts in India, including surpassing US $1 million in career earnings (now over $6 million), winning a singles Pro-level title, and winning six major titles (three each in women's doubles and in mixed doubles), as well as winning the WTA Finals in 2014 alongside Cara Black, defending the title the following year partnering with Martina Hingis.
