Leander Paes withdraws from Davis Cup tie against Serbia
Indian tennis legend Leander Paes opted out of Davis Cup tie against Serbia due to personal reasons.

It would certainly hit India’s chances at the Davis Cup, as experienced campaigner Leander Paes opted out of Davis Cup tie against Serbia due to personal reasons.

Paes made a request to the AITA to not include him in the squad, due to personal reasons. The obvious reason could be his custody battle with Rhea Pillai over their eight-year old daughter.

AITA Secretary General Bharat Oza commented, "Leander will play Asian Games and was very much willing to play in the Davis Cup as well. However due to his personal compulsions, AITA has decided to accept his request to not play against Serbia."

It would badly hit India’s chances at the Davis Cup and now Rohan Bopanna will have to partner with a lower ranked player on the tie.
