India's Mahesh Bhupathi will team up with one-time partner Max Mirnyi of Belarus in the new season.
Bhupathi and Mirnyi had enjoyed a successful partnership in the past when the two won the 2002 US Open and also reached the Wimbledon final in 2003.
Bhupathi and Mark Knowles of the Bahamas played together for the last time Saturday when they lost in the semifinals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, going down to American Bryan brothers Bob and Mike.
Knowles has decided to pair with American Mardy Fish. The two had claimed the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in February.
Mirnyi and his current partner Andy Ram of Israel have reached the final of the ATP World Tour Finals where they will face the Bryan twins.
Mirnyi and Ram had a decent 2009 season reaching three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 finals to qualify for the season finale. Ram will partner next year with Frenchman Michael Llodra.
"I am going to spend some time with Mahesh Bhupathi as he and Knowles are not playing together after this tournament. So, we are going to play some tournaments together, though we are not sure which these tournaments are," Mirnyi said.
