  • Career Highlights: Rohan Bopanna is a professional tennis player and one of India’s best on the Doubles circuit. He has been a regular member of India’s Davis Cup team since he made his debut in the 2002 Davis Cup against Australia. He turned pro in 2003 at the age of 23. He rose to fame in the 2007 Hopman Cup in Australia where he lost his singles match but won the crucial mixed doubles game with Sania Mirza against the Czech Republic and later on, similarly against Croatia. In 2008, he won his first doubles title, the Countrywide Classic, with his partner Eric Butorac. He started off 2010 on a high reaching the quarter-final of the Chennai Open with Mahesh Bhupathi. But his most successful partnership to date has been with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan. They have had moderate success at many events starting with the Johannesburg Open. In 2010, they reached their first quarter-final at Wimbledon. Their finest moment came at the 2010 US Open where the Indo-Pak Express, as they are fondly called, finished runners-up. At the 2010 Davis Cup, Bopanna was instrumental in India reaching the World Group winning the crucial singles decider. In 2011, his performance in the Davis Cup earned him plaudits and he went on to cause many upsets at the ATP 1000 event. In 2012, he decided to part ways with Qureshi and partner compatriot Bhupathi in order to prepare for the 2012 London Olympics. They won their first title at the 2012 Dubai Open. Selected as one of India’s Men’s Doubles entry to the London Games, there will be a lot of expectation on Bopanna and his senior partner Bhupathi.
