Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes: A few years back Leandre Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi were India's most prolific doubles combination, but the relationship has been marred by many splits over the years.
This year again, when Indian selectors picked Leander Paes-Mahesh Bhupati combination as the country's men's doubles tennis team for the London Olympics, Hesh turned the offer down. Mahesh Bhupathi told NDTV: "I have already told the All India Tennis Association (AITA) that I will not be available to play the Olympics if I am paired with Leander. I haven't even spoken to Leander since November."
That's not all, Mahesh Bhupathi even sent an official letter to the All India Tennis Association saying he will not play with Leander Paes in the men's doubles at the London Olympics. He has reiterated in the letter that Rohan Bopanna is the only person he's willing to partner at the event.
There's seriously a lot of love lost between Lee and Hesh.
