Indian tennis team for the London Olympics

Not open for further replies.
There is a row going on in New Delhi regarding the selection of official tennis doubles team for the London Olympics later this month. The tennis association wants Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi to play together since they were (but not currently) a formidable combination having won some slam championships in the past. There have been a couple of fallouts between them and they refuse to play together. But the contry's officials are keen on them playing together. When there is no chemistry between the players what is the point in forcing them? The government should recognize it. If the two players in discord play against their will and when one blows a shot the other will be furious and take revenge in blowing a shot himself. There goes the team spirit.

Bhupathi wants to play with Rohanna but Paes also wants to play with Rohanna. The officials must come to an equitable decision in the face of individual rancor between players. No force will do even when you preach in the name of country spirit. Take the next best decision. Let Bhupathy play with Roanna since they work better together.

Now none of these players did well at all in the recently conlcuded Wimbledon tournament. They all crashed in early rounds except for Paes who lost in the finals of mixed doubles pairing with Elena Vesnina of Russia today.

Indian tennis seems to be an off-again on-again case in the international scene. Even in the Chennai open (the only ATP tournament in India) the Indian players are not shining at all. Bhupathi and Paes are a spent force in singles. Of course, they are getting old (in their thirties) and cannot compete with international gunners who are in their late teens or twenties.
