According to reports, Leander Paes has refused to stay with Rohan Bopanna in the Olympics village because of some apparent tiff between the two.
Earlier Bopanna had preferred Saketh Myneni over Leander Paes as his doubles partner for the mega event but due to some intervention by the All India Tennis Association Leander Paes was later announced as his doubles partner.
Clearly Paes is having a few ego tussles with Bopanna and feels sidelined due to the fact that he wasn’t Bopanna’s first choice partner for Rio 2016.
Also, adding fuel to the fire, Leander Paes hasn’t yet reported to Rio and the team management is unsure as to when will he be reaching Brazil.
