Indian tennis superstars Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi have are ready for the Beijing Olympics after so much of bickering. Sources inform the estranged tennis partners will first play a couple of tournaments together in order to prepare themselves for the forthcoming sports event.

The All India Tennis Association (AITA) Executive Director Ranbir Chauhan informed that the AITA secretary Anil Khanna convened a meeting with Paes and Bhupathi, following which both agreed to play together to win a medal for India.

Chauhan said Paes and Bhupathi will play two tennis tournaments together prior the Olympics. The meeting of the AITA Secretary with Paes and Bhupathi took place in Paris where they are playing the French Open. It was only recently that Mahesh Bhupathi had complained to the AITA that Leander Paes was not cooperating for the preparations needed for Olympics. He had infact also asked the AITA to permit him to play the quadrennial event with Rohan Bopanna instead. Leander Paes had called Bhupathi’s comments as ‘silly’ and there were serious doubts as to whether the two would play together for Olympics or not.
