Bhupathi slams AITA over pairing

India's veteran tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi slammed the All India Tennis Federation (AITA) policies when it comes to pairing players for big international events.

Bhupathi was baffled by the AITA's decision to pair Sania Mirza with Leander Paes for the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi, even though he and Sania won the Australian Open mixed doubles title in 2009.

Asked if he would be seen with Sania Mirza for the mixed doubles event in London Olympics, Bhupathi said when it comes to Olympics it could be anybody's guess but when it comes to Grand Slam, he and Sania would try to add another title.

"Funny enough, the politics of our association are so that we really don't know," Bhupathi told reporters here at the Australian Open.
