March 5 marked a sad day for the Indian sports community as tennis legend Sania Mirza announced her retirement from the sport. She played her last match at the Indian Wells Masters, where she and her partner, Andreja Klepac, lost in the first round.
Her retirement announcement was met with an outpouring of support and appreciation from fans and fellow athletes alike. One such admirer is the renowned Telugu film actor Ram Charan, who took to social media to express his emotions and bid farewell to the great player.
In a touching note, Charan thanked Sania for making their country proud with her spectacular contribution to the world of sports. He also expressed his sadness at seeing such a great player retire.

Charan wrote, “My dearest buddy @MirzaSania, Tennis courts across the world will miss seeing you in action. Your contribution to sports in India is unmatched. You continue to make us proud.”
He also shared a picture of himself with Sania and his wife Upasana. The post quickly went viral, with fans of both the actor and the tennis player expressing their appreciation for the heartwarming tribute.
It’s worth noting that Ram Charan is currently in the USA with his film’s team, as RRR has been nominated for Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards. The film, which also stars Jr. NTR and Alia Bhatt, has been making waves in the Indian film industry for its larger-than-life action sequences and stunning visual effects.
The actor is also gearing up for his next project, RC 15, where he will reportedly be playing two distinct avatars. The film is being made on a budget of INR 170 crore and will star Kiara Advani as the female lead.
As we bid farewell to Sania Mirza’s illustrious tennis career, it’s heartening to see the Indian sports community come together to celebrate her achievements. With talented and dedicated athletes like her, the future of Indian sports is bright indeed.
