When husbands don’t perform, wives are blamed: Sania Mirza

DUBAI: Renowned tennis star Sania Mirza has expressed displeasure that there is a ‘cultural issue’ at play that makes people in the subcontinent blame women for men’s failures.
While talking to Indian women cricketers Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues in a recent show, Sania Mirza said, “I think whenever our husbands perform, it’s because of them and when they do not it’ is because of us.”
According to Mirza, she and Anushka Sharma, wife of Indian skipper Virat Kohli, have faced this situation on numerous occasions which is hard to comprehend. “It was funny because I and Anushka probably relate to this the most.”
“I do not know how that works,” said Mirza. The discussion came about when she was asked to speak about her ‘joru ka ghulaam’ tweet made during the Women’s T20 World Cup in March when Mitchell Starc had missed a match to watch his wife Alyssa Healy play.
In a tweet, she had written, “Sure thing !! God forbid it would be a guy from the subcontinent, the guy would be called a ‘joru ka ghulaam’ in one second  good on you Mitchell couple goals for sure!!.”

While highlighting how people would have reacted if her husband would have to come to watch one of her tennis matches and support her from the stands, Sania said, “Hell would have broken loose.”
