Default Summary so far

We have diverted from the main drama that is still going on. Here's the summary

- After All India Tennis Association decided to team up Leander and Bhupathi for Olympic doubles, all hell broke loose. The doubles ranks of them are Leander:7, Boppana: 12 and Bhupathi:18.

- If you recall, last year in 2011 they were playing doubles together. Bhupathi accused that Leander had back stabbed him by not even discussing with him and breaking up their partnership in Nov'11 and partnered Radek Stepanek. Then he partnered Boppana to play Olympics with him.
He asked AITA to send two teams, Bhupathi & Boppana, Leander & No. 4 Indian

- Then Paes camp suggested that it was Bopanna and Bhupathi who actually back stabbed him. They released an email which says Bopanna wanted to play with Paes in 2012 for the Olympics. Boppana was supposed to tell Bhupathi about this and Paes didn't tell ???? When Bhupathi came to know, he was ****ed off and then he and Boppana paired.
(Note: Who backstabbed whom )

- Next email came from Boppana to media. he said that he doesn't want to partner Paes. He broke up with Qureshi when he was No.8 in the world to play with Bhupathi.

- Mahesh also wrote a letter to Sports Ministry India to intervene. Because AITA and its chief for long is known to favor Paes.

- Then AITA wrote a letter to Sports ministry and they backed off. Now AITA will take the final decision today
