Bhupathi refuses to play Davis Cup because of Paes

According to Yahoo:

"India's Davis Cup hopes have suffered a major blow after Mahesh Bhupathi, seen here on 22 January, refused to team up with his estranged doubles partner Leander Paes."

Seems like things aren't getting any better between the 2...

The friction between them developed way before that incident. To put it simply, their ego is getting in the way.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Bhupathi refuses to play Davis Cup because of Paes

Bhupati is an idiot. That guy has no respect to his country.
His father is the one responsible for who split up the pair.

Yes it was AITA's decision. Sania and Leander won Bronze medal in 2002 Asian Games. Bhupati was given a choice at the time to play with Mirza but he choose Manisha Malhotra.(they won Silver offcourse.) and Sania was paired with Leander. AITA made the right decison choosing Sania and Leander last year.(as they have played before and it eventually worked as they took home gold medal last year.) It was Mahesh's fault as he made wrong decision in 2002.

Re: Bhupathi refuses to play Davis Cup because of Paes

I know there is a lot of history between the two, but I think that Bhupathi is not alone in not getting along with Paes. Hope it can be resolved, as they make a very formidable pairing and India deserves better in DC.

They played so well together back in 2001 when they won GS titles, it's a shame this is happening

They did everything they can.(Won medals in olympics,GS,TMS titles etc.) and reached retirement period. So i think Paes-Bhupati era is now over. It's time for us to look to youngsters like Karan Ratsogi.

Is Paes gay?
