The All India Tennis Association will announce the team for the October Commonwealth Games and next month's Davis Cup tie against Brazil after a meeting of its selection committee here on August 13.
"The Selection Committee and the Executive Committee of AITA will meet on August 13 to decide on the teams for the Davis Cup tie against Brazil, the Commonwealth Games team and probables for the Asian Games," AITA said in a statement.
India will face Brazil in a World Group play off tie in Chennai from September 17 to 19. Apart from the selection of the teams, AITA's executive committee will also discuss the government's tenure and age limitation guidelines for National Sports Federations.
The guidelines have created quite a furore with the Indian Olympic Association saying that the government's diktat is an assault on its autonomy.
"The meeting will discuss the government guidelines in respect of National Sports Federations and the IOA. Deliberations will also take place on the proposed International Olympic Committee Charter and the Constitution sent by the IOC to the IOA," the statement read.
The clash of dates between the Asian Games and the ATP World Tour finals in November will also be part of the deliberations.
A Memorandum of Understanding that AITA signed with the Sports Ministry will also be discussed.
