Leander Paes and Sania Mirza will lead India's campaign in both the individual and team tennis competitions of the Asian Games to be held in Doha in December. Paes, who last played a singles match as Davis Cup captain against Pakistan in Mumbai in April, will be joined by Mahesh Bhupathi, Rohan Bopanna, Harsh Mankad, Karan Rastogi and Prakash Amritraj in the individual men's event. Mankad, who was not available for Davis Cup duties this year, has been chosen ahead of Amritraj by virtue of his better ATP Tour ranking in team event alongside Paes, Bhupathi and Bopanna. Amritraj and Rastogi are in the reserves. In the doubles, Paes will pair with former Grand Slam partner Bhupathi while Amritraj will take the court alongside Bopanna, according to the team announced by All India Tennis Association on Tuesday. The women's team will be represented by, besides Sania, Shikha Uberoi, Ankita Bhambri, Isha Lakhani, Rushmi Chakravarthy and Sandya Nagraj in the individual competition. (PTI)
