Sania Mirza opens up on battling depression after 2008 Olympics

India’s biggest women’s tennis player Sania Mirza revealed she battled depression after a wrist injury forced her to pull out of 2008 Beijing Olympics. The 34-year-old tennis star, who went on to win six doubles Grand Slams, said the injury left her in a vulnerable state of mind as she often ‘burst into tears for no reason’.

In an interview to YouTube channel, Mind Matters, Mirza said, “That day — when I had to pull out of the 2008 Beijing Olympics because of a bad wrist injury — I went into depression for 3-4 months. I remember crying for no reason. I mean, I used to be absolutely fine and then I would just burst into tears. I remember not coming out of my room to even eat a meal for over a month.
