Facing a second major revolt of players within a year, the All India Tennis Association ( AITA ) on Friday announced a secondary team with ace doubles player Leander Paes as the only known international face in the squad for Davis Cup match against South Korea next month.
In particular, Mr Abu Aita said the party had failed to perform well in power and even said they have treated workers as badly, if not worse, than the country's former ruling party.
Mirza, who won the French Open mixed doubles title with Bhupathi earlier this month, conceded that she was ready to play with whoever AITA paired her with and the decision would not affect her performance in London.
The AITA, despite being in the know, felt that the veterans would be ready to sink their differences one more time while naming them as the doubles team for the Olympics (that after a teleconference with the concerned parties).
Having heard the three players, the selection committee decided that the most appropriate pairing for the Olympics doubles will be Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi," said a statement from AITA.
On a day of swift developments, the revolting quartet of Leander Paes, Mahesh Bhupathi, Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna made themselves available to play for the country while the sports ministry and the AITA also promised to resolve the dispute as early as possible.
The sporting fraternity seems to be backing the players on this, as they have lashed out at the AITA over the treatment meted out to the players.
