Veteran duo Rohan Bopanna has withdrawn from India’s upcoming Davis Cup match against Norway due to a knee injury. The other members of the team are Sumit Nagal, Ramkumar Ramathan, Prajnesh Gunneswaran, Yuki Bhambri and Mukund Sasikumar.
“I had to make a tough call this week in front of my unwavering love and devotion to representing my country and withdrawing from the Davis Cup team against Norway. I have arthritis in my knee and have advised to rest before playing again,” Bopanna tweeted.
It remains to be seen whether Saketh Myneni will be selected for the doubles in place of Bopanna as he recently made a successful pairing with Yuki Bhambri at Challenger level.
