“India always comes first for me. I’m very proud that I get the opportunity to represent my country in the Olympics and Davis Cup ties. It’s a different feeling altogether when playing for the tricolour and playing on the ATP circuit in individual tournaments. It was a proud moment when I was India’s flag bearer at the Sydney Games in 2000,” Leander Paes.Paes has been awarded the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award 1996-97, Arjuna award (1990) and the Padma Shri (2001).
