All India Tennis Association (AITA) on Monday condemned tweets by tennis stars Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza over qualification of gamers for Tokyo Olympics. “Twitter comments by Rohan Bopanna and then Sania Mirza are inappropriate, misleading and it appears, without knowledge of the rules. They should have checked the rule book of ITF regarding qualifications, something that Divij Sharan seems to have done while writing to TOPS,” AITA mentioned in a press release. “Rohan Bopanna could not have qualified as per ITF Rules. Therefore Sania Mirza’s tweet is also baseless and coming from a player of her stature, is condemnable,” the assertion additional learn. Bopanna had, earlier on Monday, tweeted that AITA “misled” gamers by saying that Bopanna and Sumit Nagal had an opportunity at qualification for the Games.

“ITF has never accepted an entry for Sumit Nagal & myself. ITF was clear that no changes were allowed after the nomination deadline (22nd June) unless Injury/Illness. AITA has mislead the players, government, media and everyone else by stating we still have a chance,” Bopanna had tweeted.

Responding to Bopanna’s tweet, Sania mentioned: “Whaaattt??? If this is true then it”s absolutely ridiculous and this it also means that we have sacrificed a very good shot at a medal in the mixed doubles if you and I would have played as planned. We were both told that you and Sumit”s names have been given.”

AITA hit again on the gamers and mentioned, “Fact of the matter is that India’s finest entry was despatched for Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan, which was the right choice. However, they didn’t qualify as per ITF guidelines.

“Our players’ rankings were not good enough for direct qualification, and we made all efforts to get them in. Rohan and Divij were fifth on alternate list on 16th July. Only on 16th July, when Sumit Nagal got a chance in Singles, we saw a possibility, since singles players were also being considered, of Sumit with the ability to associate with Rohan.

“We asked ITF whether the entry of Sumit Nagal will suffice to pair with Rohan Bopanna for an entry into Mens Doubles. ITF informed us that this cannot be done at this stage because of varied causes and guidelines. Even whether it is accomplished, the pair would nonetheless not qualify.

“Rohan with Sumit would be at third alternate pair.”

Questioning Bopanna’s accusations, the AITA assertion additional learn: “Is Rohan Bopanna suggesting that we should have entered his name with Sumit Nagal one month ago, when Sumit’s ranking was in the 140s and Divij was at 78. The comment by Rohan Bopanna, who is a senior player is due to lack of data and with out understanding the details, guidelines of ITF and is unwarranted and completely deceptive.

AITA known as out Sania’s feedback as “most inappropriate”.

“Even the feedback of Sania Mirza are most inappropriate. Ranking of Rohan with Divij or Sumit Nagal were not good enough for qualification. So how did we we lose an opportunity to win medals either in men’s doubles or mixed doubles,” AITA mentioned.

“This tweet and assertion of Mr. Bopanna is condemned unequivocally.”
