AITA lacks professionalism: Somdev Devvarman

Indian tennis player Somdev Devvarman, who led a rebellion against the All India Tennis Association (AITA), said that the association has been acting in an unprofessional manner in handling their demands.

AITA named the Davis Cup team for the Feb 1-3 tie against South Korea to be held here, leaving out the rebel players Devvarman, Mahesh Bhupathi, Rohan Bopanna, Yuki Bhambri, Sanam Singh, Vishnu Vardhan, Divij Saran and Sanam Singh.

“There is zero communication, zero professionalism from AITA. We are just asking for basic rights that we as players deserve. Every one of us would have made ourselves available and would have played if the situation was dealt with in a professional manner,” Somdev (27) told NDTV on Saturday from Melbourne.
