2012, one of my best years in ATP: Bopanna

He was unwittingly dragged into the biggest controversy to rock Indian tennis this year, but ace doubles player Rohan Bopanna still considers the past 12 months as “one of the best” of his career.

“It’s been a great year with all the ups and downs. It’s definitely one of my best years as I defended my Paris Masters title, making the World Tour finals, playing the Olympics, winning a 500 event in Dubai and reaching two Master series finals. It’s been one of my best years on Tour,” Bopanna said in an interview.

Bopanna was involved in an ugly selection row with the AITA ahead of the London Olympics involving his then partner Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes.

After the Olympics, Bopanna and Bhupathi were banned by the AITA for not abiding by the selector’s decision although the court had stayed that decision later on.

Bopanna won the BNP Paribas Paris Masters and Dubai Duty Free tournament while ended runners-up in Barclays ATP World Tour Doubles Finals, ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Shanghai and ATP World Tour Masters.
