Who is responsible for India's Davis Cup's current mess?
February 1, 2013 8:43pm CST
India has been forced to field inexperienced junior rookies straight into the big league, Davis Cup home match against South Korea. As India's 7 top tennis players have revolted against All India Tennis Federation, demanding better perks and facilities. And as expected, after opening singles Korea leads India 2-0. One rookie was simply blown away, but insisted he did his best against far too superior opponent. And the other did fight gamely though lost in straight sets, and picked up injury and could not even complete his match. I think both the players and federation should have sorted their problems amicably. They should think of country first and give up their egos. As it hurts image of Indian Tennis and does not benefit anyone.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well it is very much disheartening to see the ongoing stalemate in India's tennis scene and i do not how other countries would be reacting to this condition. i do not know whom to blame but what is saddening is the lack of coordination between the players and the tennis officials. What say?

Thanks for responding my friend. Yes it is very unfortunate situation we find ourselves in. I think both Indian tennis players and federation should sort this mess soon as it is hurting Indian Tennis. We have gifted away this Davis Cup home tie. And if stalemate continues, Indian fans, media and sponsors will too slowly lose interest and move away.
