Rohan Bopanna Pulls Out Of Davis Cup Tie Against Pakistan Due To Injury


The 39-year-old was expected to play with legendary Leander Paes for the doubles rubber during the November 29-30 tie.

Ali said although it’s a blow, they have a backup and that is the reason three extra doubles players were picked.

“It is a setback. To miss out on Rohan who is a top player and has so much of experience but we have backup and that is the reason we picked three doubles players. If you look at the team, we have singles players also who can play doubles. Ramkumar Ramanathan won the KPIT MSLTA Challenger event yesterday in Pune (with Purav Raja). So yes, we will miss Rohan but we have backup,” said Ali.

Left-handed Nedunchezhiyan was named as one of the three reserves in the eight-member squad which was announced earlier.

Bopanna is India’s top ranked doubles player.
