Recently, Sania threw mild on her battle with despair and recalled how she used to cry for no motive. Sania mentioned she confronted psychological well being points after retiring from her first spherical match in Beijing Olympics in 2008 and feared that she would by no means be capable of play tennis once more.
“At 34, it is a lot clearer in my mind but at 20, there were a lot of incidents where I honestly felt that I could not do this,” Sania had mentioned in a YouTube interview for ‘Mind Matters’.
“One incident was when I had to pull out of my match at the Olympics. It was the 2008 Beijing Olympics and I had a very bad wrist injury. I went into depression for 3-4 months after that, I remember crying for no reason. I would be absolutely fine and then I would burst into tears. I remember not coming out of my room to even eat a meal for over a month,” she added.
