The Indian tennis star, Mirza has also hit out at Leandar Paes' father, who had asked to give in writing about her intention of partnering Leander Paes for the Olympics. There is no need of such things. One fails to understand as to why does a player's father come into the picture and make the situation look even more bad. He should not make such public announcements.
She did not attack Leander as such, for his involvement in the issue. Being a top ranked Indian player, Leander Paes' pairing with Vishnu Vardhan seems unfair. She says that Vishnu can play better when playing alongside Leander. But, she seems to have been upset Mahesh, as they were the original team to play for India in the mixed doubles. She feels that he sacrificed the commitment that he had made to her of winning an Olympic medal together, as per Sania Mirza's letter which has been published by NDTV.
But, Mahesh was also helpless in this situation. The AITA played out a very clever card and teamed up Leander with Sania, which was a matter of consolation for Leander, if we look at the bigger picture. It was not possible for Mahesh to get both Sania and Bopanna, as his partners. Everyone knows that more weightage has been given to the men's doubles competition.
But with such kind of reaction by Sania Mirza, is the Indian Tennis drama again going to ignite? Indian Tennis has already received a bad name during the last 15-20 days for the Olympic team selection drama, so we do not want the see the sport stoop more. It is time for the players and the officials to get back into on-field action and not off-field drama.
