“Over all the celebrityhood, when is Sania going to settle down? Is it going to be in Dubai? Is it going to be in another country? What about motherhood? Building a family? I don’t see that in the book. It seems like you don’t want to retire yet to settle down,” said Rajdeep.
On which Sania replied and questioned him;
“You don’t think I am settled? You sound disappointed that I am not choosing motherhood over being number one in the world at this point of time. But I will answer your question anyway, This is one of the questions, as women, that we have to face all the time. Unfortunately, that’s when we are settled and no matter how many Wimbledons we win or number ones we become, we don’t become ‘settled’.”
Rajdeep apologized saying,
“I must apologise. I think I phrased that question very badly. I promise, you’re right, I wouldn’t have asked that to a male athlete.”

“I hope that a few years from now on, a girl, when she is 29, isn’t asked the question about when’s she going to have a child when she is number one in the world.”
