Indian tennis star Sania Mirza says she has found the prince of her dreams in Shoaib Malik and that they are an "ideal couple." Sania told Jang, Pakistan's mainstream Urdu daily, that she is extremely happy with her marriage to Malik, the former Pakistan cricket captain.

"I have got the prince of dreams," she said. “The simplicity of Shoaib had impressed me a lot. Today he is the same person as he was before marrying me. We have never had any differences between us, not even minor ones.” Sania said she is sure that she could not have found a better husband than Shoaib.

“I won my first tournament in Dubai after our marriage and Shoaib was present. Both of us are professional players and understand the importance of having such support. God has made us an ideal couple.” Sania said she is an Indian and would retain her nationality but added that they have decided to settle in Dubai.

“I have been playing and have no plans to retire from tennis. I wish to grab a gold for India in the London Olympics.”

The 24-year-old is also concerned about Shoaib's omission from the current Pakistan side.

"Shoaib is out of Pakistan cricket but I pray for his return." She said she is not jealous by Shoaib's female following. "I am not jealous because he is my husband.”
