In her long letter, Sania Mirza penned her feelings about people's perception of a female sportsperson, making a comeback in the court/field. Excerpts of her letter can be read as "Dear mothers, it is often said that that a woman has to choose between becoming a mother and chasing her dreams. Today, I write this letter sharing my journey and also a little bit of inspiration I got from Serena Williams and her journey. I want to dedicate my words to the wonderful mothers and strong mothers who have dared to dream and each day have strived to maintain a balance between motherhood and their professions. To a world that stereotypes women as homemakers it often comes as a surprise if one succeeds in fulfilling her dreams and career with sheer grit and determination."

Her letter could be further read as "Pregnancy is something I had experienced for the first time in my life. I thought about it, and I think we all have a certain picture about it, but once you experience it, you really understand what it means. It absolutely changes you as a human being. It's an extraordinary thing. It's an experience I recommend women should go through because it really does teach you to respect yourself and your body but also teaches you the selfless kind of love that at least I never knew existed for me."

It is the most selfless kind of love I have ever known, and it is the most amazing feeling I have ever had. My life has completely changed for the better. Ya, Shoaib is also playing quite a lot and is travelling so he does help whenever he can."
