Petition Closed

India increases its chances of winning a medal in Men's tennis in the London Olympics 2012 by sending two teams in lieu of one. Mahesh Bhupathi & Rohan Bopanna have a score that has earned them a place automatically. AITA must take into consideration players's thoughts and lend them a voice in their final consideration so that 'united we stand, divided we fall' is truly put into practice.

Ignoring a combination that is fully committed, dedicated and prepared is an unjustifiable compromise. To not send one of the best tennis teams in the world to the Olympics - and to, instead, choose to nominate one that has had four previous unsuccessful attempts - fails to put the interests of the nation first.

Despite the option of sending two pairs, the selectors picked only one. Choosing to send only one team when India is entitled to two denies two highly accomplished players of the privilege and opportunity to represent the country at the Olympics.

Please sign this petition to AITA in strong support of sending Mahesh Bhupathi & Rohan Bopanna along with Leander Paes to the Olympics.
