Kolkata:

The much-awaited reunion of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi might not be restricted to the Athens Olympics but could go on further. Seven-time tennis grand slam champion Mahesh Bhupathi today did not rule out playing with Paes even after the Olympic Games in August. Bhupathi said that their relationship had improved since last year. Medal chances brightThe 29-year old doubles specialist took exception to legendary Ramanathan Krishnan doubting the chances of the former number one pair winning a medal at Athens. "We know how important the Olympics is for the country. We think we can succeed. It doesn't matter what anybody else says," Bhupathi addedKrishnan had said that the duo might end up without winning a medal in Athens as they were getting older and had not played together in the circuit "for some time now". On his injury and playing the French Open, he said the three days' time that he has before the doubles competition begins would be "enough to get into shape". (PTI)
