Indian tennis players who have rebelled against the AITA said they were disappointed with the national body for selecting an inexperienced Davis Cup team.

In a joint statement, Mahesh Bhupathi, Rohan Bopanna, Somdev Devvarman, Yuki Bhambri, Vishnu Vardhan, Sanam Singh, Divij Sharan, Saketh Myneni, Sriram Balaji, Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and Vijay Sundar Prashanth said: “We are disappointed to note that instead of engaging in discussion with us, the AITA has selected an inexperienced team to represent India in Davis Cup.

The AITA’s position reiterates and reaffirms our stand, and we are constrained to state that, unfortunately, we will be unavailable to represent the country until such time that the AITA engages with us in good faith.”
