She used a hashtag "#sananswers. The Indian tennis star patiently answered questions from fans around the world. A fan asked Sania about her favourite cricketer, of course he put a condition 'besides Shoaib Malik'. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni may have captured the country's attention now but like a true 90s Indian kid, she was quick to answer '<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sachin-tendulkar" target="_blank">Sachin Tendulkar</a>'. <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/MirzaSania/status/938385400195715073 <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/harisahmad_1/status/938385596044759040 <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/MirzaSania/status/938386059301228544 <p></p> <p></p>Sania also named her favourite singles Tennis star and the answer is far from surprising. Roger Federer was her answer. <p></p> <p></p>Coming to cricket, this is a sport very close to her heart. She is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. It is no surprise that she is a Tendulkar fan. The Master Blaster played international cricket for 24 years, in between 1989 to 2013 and notched up a number of batting records. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/sania-mirza-asks-shoaib-malik-for-a-ride-shadab-khan-plays-spoilsport-656276"] <p></p> <p></p>It is a mutual admiration club. Last year, Tendulkar said in an interview that Sania had inspired a generation of Indians. When Tendulkar retired in 2013, in an interview with <i>Times of India</i>, Sania said, "Sachin Tendulkar has been my inspiration. I am thrilled at Sachin being selected for the Bharat Ratna - he deserves it. I remember the day I won the Wimbledon junior title. I was just 15 years old. That day, Sachin gifted me a car with his signature at that time, I did not know who Sachin was! <p></p> <p></p>But then I learned Sachin is not only a legendary cricketer but also excellent at tennis. In 2006, Sachin came to Kolkata to play an exhibition match. Having suffered a leg injury, I was asked to be a referee and Sachin played in that match!"
