The world famous tennis star, who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik in 2010, gave birth to a baby boy in 2018.
After delivering son Izhan, Sania followed a rigorous routine to get back in shape.

“Everyone is asking me questions like how did I lose weight after having a baby?” “I gained 23kg during my pregnancy, and now I have lost 26kg,” she said.
Sania shared her journey as an inspiration for all those women who want to get back in shape post-pregnancy.
".. I put on 23 kilos when I was pregnant and have managed to lose 26 in span of 4 months or so .. with a lot of hard work ,discipline and dedication .." Sania continued.
Dividing her story into day clips, Sania revealed a set of exercises that she followed relentlessly to lose 26kgs.

" Ladies, I just wanna say ... if I can do it then anyone else can too .. believe me that one hour or 2 hours a day to yourself will do wonders to you physically but sooo much mentally as well," wrote Sania.
