In an interview to BA Tennis World, the Indian doubles player Rohan Bopanna commented on Roger Federer and Rafael” nadal> rejoining the ATP Players Council. They will co-operate with President Novak Djokovic to try to improve the game.
Bopanna, speaking at the Rogers Cup in Montreal, said: “I think it’s fantastic to have these guys back in the Player Council. They’ve done such great jobs when they were a part of it and to have them back is a really, really plus point for the ATP and for all of us as players.”
On how it has been like to play doubles with Denis Shapovalov in Canada, Bopanna added: “Rather fun! Especially here in Canada. He’s got a lot of good support. I’m playing with such a young and talented boy!
I’ve enjoyed playing with him this year. We got to know each other pretty well as well. The key in doubles is just enjoying it. That’s what makes a good partnership. We’re having a lot of fun on court and are playing some good tennis.”
Bopanna also enjoyed some support from Indian followers: “I’ve had that from the past. In the few years I’ve been coming to Canada, there’s been a tremendous support. We are a big population in our country so there are a few people here supporting as well. It’s always a bonus. It’s nice to have home support outside your country.”
