New Delhi:

The Indian Express pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes have not had a cordial relation for a while now.

They do come together to play for India, like they will for the upcoming Beijing Olympics, but the discord between the two is rather apparent.

Neither has come on record earlier, but now speaking exclusively to NDTV, Mahesh Bhupathi has said that as of now things are cold.

The 10-time grand slam champion, who disapproved of Leander Paes comments on Prakash Amritraj during the Davis Cup, said he and his former doubles partner now don't see eye to eye on any issue.

But he also said that it won't get in the way of their playing in the Davis Cup or the Beijing Olympics.

Mahesh said he also stands by the advice he gave to Sania Mirza about skipping the Bangalore Open so as to avoid controversies.
