Rohan Bopanna taking a cue from Mahesh Bhupathi has also declined to partner Leander Paes at the London Olympics. Earlier, Bhupathi had made it clear that he won't team up with Paes in the doubles team.


On Friday, the All India Tennis Association's [AITA] selection committee "unanimously" picked Paes and Bhupathi after a meeting, leaving out Bopanna from the scheme of things. The AITA has decided to send only one doubles team to Olympics despite there being a provision to send two.

Before the selection committee meeting, Bhupathi and Bopanna had written to AITA requesting to pair them up and not with anyone else for London. If Bopanna and Bhupathi remain adamant on their stand then both the players could face ban for two years.
