According to Indian newspaper India Today, Mirza said she was 15 at the time and did not even know who Tendulkar was. However, she said she was very delighted at the present.

India’s No. 1 tennis player said Tendulkar was not only a legendary cricketer but was also excellent at tennis, and she knew it only when Tendulkar came to Kolkata to play an exhibition game where Mirza was match referee.

She said nobody wants Tendulkar to leave cricket, but every player has to call it a day at some point. Therefore, his decision should be respected, she said.

Referring to Virat Kohli, she said there was no dearth of talented players in Indian team. However, no one could replace the Little Master, she added.
