he claimed, Saketh and me did lose in New Zealand But what about the other two ties that we won We won in India (against Chinese Taipei) and we won in Korea as well Just because a team has lost once doesn’t mean automatically we change them Also against New Zealand the players we lost to were Artem Sitak and Marcus Daniell And Daniell is not even in the team coming to Pune If I was somebody looking at this I would do my homework Check who’s playing what who’s done what At the end of the day you’re representing your country Tomorrow if I play Roger Federer and lose one set 7-6 then win the second set then lost the third 6-0 it doesn’t make a difference I didn’t move to the second round People will say ‘ok you played a great set’ but I still didn’t move to the next round What do you make of the three-singles-one-doubles player strategy I’ll support the captain’s decision Last time we played in Bangalore against Indonesia was the same thing They wanted three singles and one doubles And they picked Leander Paes because he was the highest-ranked player So what I’m saying is let’s have some consistency Don’t have one year saying you’re picking the highest-ranked player and then the next year you’re not because somebody won one set Makes no sense Also when you pick singles players your number one player should be ready to play all three days In Chandigarh at eight in the morning they called me and said I need to play today because the singles player was not fit enough So you need to pick a singles player who is ready to play all three days and if he isn’t ready then find an alternative If you have your number one player there then if not three days then at least two days for sure he should be able to play You can’t just play one match If you look at Andy Murray Great Britain won their title (2015) because Murray played single-doubles-singles We want to qualify for the World Group The last time was in 2011 In 2010 we beat Brazil in Chennai with three doubles and one singles player So sometimes it’s not just the question of picking three singles players and one doubles player It should be to see if someone is fit enough to be there for three days and whether he can handle the pressure and situations there So what’s the ideal system Have some consistency Follow some rules Tomorrow if ranking becomes a criterion the ranking is picking itself and nobody is going to question it Follow a system where not one player can question it But there is zero consistency There was an article quoting SP Misra saying ‘Leander and Rohan performed badly against Czech Republic so we can’t fit them’ Six months ago I was saying exactly the same thing before Rio Today the same logic I gave them then they’re giving it back to me now So how come six months ago the best team for Rio was that and six months later it’s not logical And in 2013 you’re picking your highest-ranked player and then in 2016 you’re not picking your highest-ranked player Follow a system Follow something that’s going to make a difference Rumour is that Leander Paes was picked so he can complete his Davis Cup doubles record… If they’re doing that that’s the wrong thing You’re not picking players for their own individual record You’re picking players because they have to play for a country a team The team comes first not the individual If they’re going on that basis it’s wrong When you’re doing it for yourself you can do what you want But when you’re playing for the country the country comes first That shows there is no respect for the country There’s always controversy in Indian tennis during team matches and never during tour matches… That’s because there is no system (of selection) If there was a system there wouldn’t be any controversy It’s frustrating for players On the circuit nobody can question things because they follow rules Over here there are no rules It’s all according to convenience You can’t choose according to convenience per year You weren’t available for the tie against Spain Do you think AITA held that against you I had a knee injury I got in the mixed doubles at the US Open So I called the captain there itself and told him I’ve hurt my knee And the physio there asked me to take 10 days off Genuinely for any player who plays constantly from January to October injuries are part of the game So I called the captain from the US itself and told him what the physio had said after they got the scans So I skipped the Davis Cup week and the week after the tournament You wrote a letter about you and Saketh being a better combination for the Olympics But now they’ve cut you out of the picture… They’re going by compatibility and partnership That’s exactly what I was going by six months ago But unfortunately six months ago compatibility and partnership was not logical to them But today it is logical They’re saying Leander and I didn’t do well against the Czech Republic in September 2015 And that’s what I told them before Rio as well But they said ‘no this is the best team’ What do you make of Mahesh Bhupathi as captain I didn’t know about it until I saw the news None of us were even asked or told about it (from the AITA) We heard that there was going to be a captain change I didn’t even know that Mahesh was going to be captain till I read the news I was in IPTL with him and I didn’t know Only once I found out I sent him a message congratulating him What will he bring to the team The fact that he’s been on the tour till pretty much last year he knows all the players (foreign) and how they play That’s what will make a difference once he becomes the captain And if they’re looking for a new captain for the future that’s how they need to think of the team at the same time You don’t look at the team one tie at a time They’re looking at him for the future He knows the players well so they will be comfortable with him too just like with Anand He has played against the majority of the players so he knows their weaknesses Also the fact that he’s been part of the team with Yuki (Bhambri) Saketh Ram (Ramkumar Ramanathan) So tomorrow if we have any doubts nobody is hesitant to ask him and he’ll tell them how it is With Mahesh coming in what’ll that spell for Leander on the team Like I said if you just follow a system then no matter who the captain is or who the player is you don’t have to worry Only when there is no system then that’s when all these things come into play And there is no system That has to change Do you think Mahesh will be able to bring about that change That’ll be great if we can get a system going with him as captain I’m not saying ‘pick me for the next tie’ I’m just saying follow a system then the system will pick players Tomorrow if Purav Raja and Divij Sharan are ranked higher then done Pick them Whether I’ve won so many tournaments or not doesn’t matter About the incumbent what made Anand Amritraj a good captain He was always a great captain The first time I played under him was at the 2002 Busan Asian Games He always motivates you on court keeps you relaxed he’s always fun to be with When we went to Korea and beat them at home for the first time it was under Anand There were only six of us We went out for dinners and camaraderie was great under Anand as captain For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News I don’t think as
