Sania Mirza calls Leander Paes a toxic person
“The ONLY way to win with a toxic person, is not to play!!! #karmaiswatching #zenmode.” tweeted Sania Mirza raking up a storm of sorts in the tennis circles yet again. Who is the person called “toxic” by Sania? It’s significant that this great tennis player is not liked by Sania and Rohan Bopanna, as he even retweeted Sania's tweet and also added, “At it again!! ...the usual ploy to stay in the news by slanging fellow players in media. #Patriotism.” he said. In all likelihood this could be about Leander Paes, and this is what he said about India’s mixed doubles team (Sania-Bopanna) at Rio Olympics: “I can very clearly say that in this Olympics and last Olympics we didn’t put the best team forward.
This Olympics the mixed doubles was a great opportunity.” “I’m someone who has a long-sight, we’ve got the Asian Games coming up in 18 months and the Olympics in four years, whether I’m around or not around, got to nurture these guys. Otherwise four years from now, it would again be a tussle for who is playing the Olympics and come back without anything,” he said. For mixed doubles, Paes was just coming off winning the French Open title with Martina Hingis. But Sania chose Bopanna over the veteran player. Paes suggested that he should have been Sania’s partner in the team, instead of Bopanna. “What more does a man need to do than win four Grand Slams in 14 months?” Paes said of his record prior to the Olympics. “There was no more tournaments to win, I could not create anymore tournaments. Sad.”
