She made a comeback to Fed cup after a four-year sabbatical and won the cup.
She took the sabbatical to raise her son Izhaan Mirza Malik.
Sania won the cup in the Asia/Oceania zone after winning over her competitors with a whopping 10,000 out of 16,985 voters. As the winner, she also received $2,000.
