HYDERABAD: Sania Mirza's days of singledom come to an end tonight with the Indian tennis ace all set to get engaged to childhood friend Sohrab Mirza in a private ceremony.

Sohrab is an MBA student and son of a city-based businessman.

The 22-year-old Sania and Sohrab (23) will exchange rings at 8.30pm at a posh city hotel tonight.

With two cupid-struck youth creating nuisance outside Sania's Banjara Hills residence in the last two days, the city police have made tight security arrangements to ward off any trouble at the function.

The Mirza family have gone to great lengths to keep the function a private affair, away from media glare.

"This is a private affair and we request the media to cooperate with us," Sania's father Imran Mirza told mediapersons who gathered outside their residence.

Sohrab is pursuing MBA in Britain and his father owns a chain of bakeries in the city.
The groom's family, who migrated from Iran many years ago, lives in Anand Nagar in the heart of the city.

Imran Mirza had earlier said that Sania would pursue the game after her engagement. The wedding would take place a couple of years later.

Sania is likely to leave for America later this month to participate in the US Open and other competitions, sources said.
