(FILES) In this photograph taken on January 22, 2012, Mahesh Bhupathi of India (L) and compatriot Rohan Bopanna speak during their men's doubles match against Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram of the US on the seventh day of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne. India's top tennis doubles player will team up with a poorly-rated and inexperienced partner at the Olympics after two other better players refused to play with him, officials said June 21, 2012. Leander Paes, ranked seven in world as a doubles player, will be paired with 207th-ranked Vishnu Vardhan, the All-India Tennis Association (AITA) announced following days of arguments in which even the government tried to intervene. Both Rohan Bopanna (ranked 13) and Mahesh Bhupathi (15) said they would not play with Paes for a range of personal and professional reasons including that he was not trustworthy.
