This seems likes a throwback to the events from 2012, when Paes wasn't given a chance to play with Bopanna in the Olympics as he opted for Mahesh Bhupati as his partner.

Consequently, Sania Mirza, who also wanted to play with Bhupati, was forced to pair with Paes in order to pacify him. However, the reports are not yet confirmed and an official announcement from AITA (All India Tennis Association) is awaited.
