Sania Mirza and Bopanna represented India at the Rio Olympics in the Mixed Doubles category. They crashed out of the tourney in the Semi Finals. Leander Paes who aspired to represent India at Rio Olympics along side Sania Mirza has only criticized the selection process. He complained the best team wasn't sent for Rio Olympics. On the other hand, Leander Paes and Bopanna who played Men's Doubles in Rio Olympics failed miserably and got ousted in the first round itself.
Sania Mirza took to Twitter to wrote: 'The ONLY way to win with a toxic person, is not to play!!! #karmaiswatching #zenmode'.
The Hyderabadi Star's Mixed Doubles Partner Bopanna immediately retweeted the Tweet. This development gave a feeling they took a dig at Leander Paes in this manner.
