‘Don’t believe rebellion is important’

India's top tennis player Leander Paes on Wednesday broke his silence on the revolt against AITA by eight players, led by Somdev Devvarman, saying he doesn't believe ‘that the rebellion is important’.

Paes, who had stayed away from the rebellion against the AITA, however, said he believes that communication is important. ‘I personally don't believe that rebellion is important. But communication should always be open. There is one point which all of us are missing - the game is bigger than all of us, it will always be. End of the day, sport is most important. Whether it's the Association, or players or you guys (media), essence should not be lost,’ Paes said after a training session for the Davis Cup tie against South Korea at RK Khanna Tennis Stadium.

‘Never in my career had I questioned the decision of the selection committee. So many times in the recent past, my partner was switched. I accepted it, as I had no choice. I have to play for the flag and the people,’ said Leander who will play doubles with Purav Raja.
