NEW DELHI: Indian tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi has refused to play with Leander Paes at the Olympics, saying he does not trust him. The All-India Tennis Association (AITA) on Friday named the duo for the men’s doubles event, despite Bhupathi publicly stating that he wanted to play with current partner Rohan Bopanna. “Doubles is not only about serve and volley, it’s about mutual respect and trust,” said Bhupathi. “I don’t trust him after he dumped me without warning at the end of last year.”
