Indian tennis – a.k.a. soap opera

Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi became rock stars in India back when they teamed up to win big doubles titles. But the relationship went south – really, really south – long ago. And it seems they’re STILL at it after Paes was on the sidelines for last weekend’s victorious Davis Cup tie vs. Uzbekistan. Paes explained his point of view after Bhupathi, now Davis Cup captain, leaked a WhatsApp exchange between the two. India will play Canada in September for a promotion to the World Group for 2018. Sounds like Paes won’t be part of it.
