The decision of Mahesh Bhupathi not to play for the country does not augur well for the country’s prospects in competitions like the Davis Cup, the Asian Games and the Olympics. Bhupathi has his own reasons for this drastic decision. Leander Paes the other half of the famed duo, is hopeful of finding a solution.
Paes and Bhupathi appeared to have the world at their feet with their exploits on the tennis court, more so when playing for the country. Their glorious run came to a premature end and the renewal of the partnership was only shortlived. But this decision has jolted the country’s hope of a medal in the Asian Games. A medal in the tennis competition was a sure bet.
The derailment of the ‘Indian Express’ has so far resulted in many casualities.
