Sania Mirza has been out of action since 2017 and made her comeback in 2020. However, with the coronavirus pandemic spread across the globe, all major sporting events have taken a back seat.
Major Grand Slams like French Open and Wimbledon have taken a huge hit. While the French Open has been pushed back to September by the organisers, Wimbledon has been scrapped this year. It is the first instance since World War II that Wimbledon has been cancelled.
Players from Roger Federer to Novak Djokovic have taken to social media to entertain their fans. Federer has been sharing videos of himself practicing at home.
Roger Federer and his wife Mirka have also donated $1 million Swiss Francs to the most vulnerable families of Switzerland to help them in the fight against coronavirus.
