Former Davis Cup captain Naresh Kumar believes it is just a matter of time before the estranged duo of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi get their on-court chemistry back for the Beijing Olympics in August.

The duo decided to pair up again after parting ways after the Asian Games last year, and Kumar feels they will not face any problem of gelling on the court since they have played together for a long time and have a formidable record in doubles.

"They have played together for so many years. Bhupathi played well in the Australian Open. They will require relatively shorter time than others and it is matter of just two good tournaments," Kumar said.

"I think they will play well in Olympics. They will not take much time to synchronise," he said.

Kumar said Rohan Bopanna was in good nick and he would be India's key man in the upcoming Davis Cup tie against Uzbekistan.

"Bopanna has got a very good game. I watched him in the Hopman cup, he played well there. He is playing very well and team will depend on him. I don't know why he is not doing better." he said.
