CHANDIGARH -- Indias top-ranked mens doubles player Rohan Bopanna steered clear of controversial remarks on his pairing with Leander Paes for the Olympics and said his sole focus was practice on the eve of Indias Davis Cup encounter against South Korea.Our equation is cordial. We have been practising with each other as much as we can. On Wednesday morning, we had a two-hour session. The more time we spend on practice courts the more it will help us and the better are chances are, he said.In a preparatory exercise ahead of the Olympics, Bopanna and Paes will pair up for the Davis Cup Asia/Oceania second-round tie against South Korea that gets underway in Chandigarh on Friday.The forced smiles and the high-fives for the camera seem little more than an attempt to divorce their personal equations from their on-court chemistry. But, with little more than a fortnight to go for the Rio Games, both players know theres little choice.Whatever the decision is, it cannot be changed or overruled. Its all in the past. Theres no point dwelling on it if we want to move on, Bopanna said.With training sessions shifting to hard courts following rain on Thursday, Paes practiced with reserve player Sumit Nagal for a while with Bopanna choosing to watch from the sidelines. We are hoping the sun will shine tomorrow. We cant play on grass courts even with the slightest drizzle. Bopanna said.Four years ago, Bopanna had refused to partner Paes at the London Olympics, where India went on to put up a dismal show after fielding two teams as a conciliatory measure. This time around, there was a conscious effort on Bopannas part to avert a repeat of the fiasco.Despite the AITA going against his wishes of partnering Saketh Myneni and picking Paes instead, Bopanna chose, begrudgingly, to abide by the decision. The prerogative of picking his partner by virtue of being ranked in the top 10 being watered down by the AITAs discretion to overrule it, still rankles.Im not sure about the clauses but I guess it stated that my decision can be overruled by the federation. I think they should look into the clause and see if it can be changed, said Bopanna, hinting that the ambiguity over the players choice needs to be re-examined. As a tennis player you live by what you choose. Im here in the top 10 by choosing my partners. No one has ever chosen my partner before, he said.
