Tennis ace Sania Mirza is back in the headlines with rumours surrounding her marital discord with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. Recently, Sania removed all pictures of Shoaib from her Instagram account, which intensified the speculations of a rift between them. Now, another post from the Tennis ace has added fuel to the speculations.

On Wednesday, Sania shared a post on her Instagram story that read: Marriage is hard, Divorce is hard, Choose your hard. Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard, Choose your hard. Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard. Communication is hard, Not communication is hard, Choose your hard. (sic)

Her post ended with: Life will never be easy. It will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely. (sic)

Well, such a post in which Sania talks about ‘divorce, being in debt, no communication and choosing hard’ has reignited the speculations about the rift with her husband.

One user wrote, “I think they are divorced. She removed all pictures of Shoaib and herself from insta except for the pictures where their son is present.” (sic)

“Its been ages yaar...ab tou clear kerden k kya mamla hai,” wrote a second user (sic)

“They are probably divorced & just haven't made it public. It must be difficult maintaining a marriage, whilst living in 2 countries that do not have a cordial relationship. At least she has a gorgeous little boy from the relationship,” wrote another user. (sic)

However, there is no official clarification yet from Sania and Shoaib about their rift.

Earlier, Shoaib also altered his Instagram bio in which he eliminated any mention of being married to Sania. Earlier, the Pakistani cricketer had affectionately referred to himself as the husband of a superwoman. 

When asked about the divorce rumours, Shoaib cryptically responded and stated, “Khabre chal rahi hai, taluqat acche nahi hai (Rumours are going around that all's not well in the relationship). What do you want to say?” (sic)

Moreover, unconfirmed reports suggested that Shoaib had an alleged extramarital affair with Pakistani actress Ayesha Omar which added to the strain in their relationship. However, Ayesha dismissed the rumours and denying any involvement with a married man.
