Sania is Likely to Pair Leander Paes in Doubles

Mahesh Bhupathi said on Wednesday that Indian star player Sania Mirza was used without even being consulted. Sania after getting a wildcard for the London Olympics on Tuesday, hit out at AITA for treating her as bait in the selection row. She was also critical of Bhupathi and Leander Paes. Bhupathi stood by her.

“As far as I am concerned, I stand by Sania and think we are the best mixed doubles pair” said Bhupathi.

Sania had earlier said that Bhupathi had sacrificed his commitment to play with her at the Olympics after their French Open title early this month.

“Mahesh Bhupathi has firmly stood by his commitment to play together with his men’s doubles partner, Rohan Bopanna as he genuinely believed it was good for India. However, in the process, he sacrificed the commitment he made to me to try and win an Olympic medal together for India” Sania had said in her statement on Tuesday.

Sania however made it clear that although she preferred Bhupathi, she is ready to partner Paes in the larger interest of the country.
