Yuki says he has enough experience

After five days of the unending Indian tennis soap opera, youngster Yuki Bhambri has also joined the bandwagon. He questioned Leander Paes’ decision to not partner a lower-ranked player in the Olympics.

“Leander should remember, in 1992, Ramesh Krishnan took him under his wings. Leander is 38-39 and it’s time he gives back to tennis,” the 19-year-old told a television channel.

Yuki insisted that he was not inexperienced and cited examples to back it up. “I just came back a couple of hours ago after playing on grass at the Wimbledon (the Olympic venue). I have a wealth of experience... I played alongside Carlos Moya in Chennai Open, so there is no question of inexperience. Not sure, what the players are afraid of. I had beaten the world No 43 on clay in Davis Cup and Leander was there,” Yuki added.

Ranked 306 in doubles, Yuki backed the two-team option. “First time we have the opportunity to send two doubles teams to the Olympics and it’s a great opportunity for someone like me.”
