Leander Paes is hoping for peaceful passage to the Rio Games in August. It will be his record seventh Olympics. Paes had won a bronze medal in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Paes was denied his choice of partner for the 2012 London Games and was forced to play with rookie Vishnu Vardhan since Rohan Bopanna preferred to partner Mahesh Bhupathi in the men's doubles. A lot of bad blood was created and India returned without any medal. An NDTV exclusive.
