Mirza told “I was supposed to stop right after the WTA finals because we were looking to make it to the WTA finals but things changed because of an elbow injury just before the US Open. And honestly, as the person that I am, I like to do things on my own terms. That’s why I don’t want to be forced by injury and am training.”

He further said- “I am trying to retire in Dubai during the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championship. I am 36 years old and to be honest my body has responded, that is the main reason. And I really don’t have the capacity to push it any more emotionally. I turned pro in 2003. Now the priorities have changed and now my priority is not to push my body so much every day.
