winner of 12 Grand Slam crowns, is going through the motions on the Tour.
Former doubles world No. 1 Mahesh Bhupathi has logged in successive first-round losses - in New York, Bangkok and Beijing - in his last three starts, raising questions why the 39-year-old, winner of 12 Grand Slam crowns, is going through the motions on the Tour.
"I'm winding down," Bhupathi said. "I'm playing the weeks I can play, going to the tournaments I want to go to before I call it a day next summer. I might still play a tournament or two this year and then a handful next year. "I haven't yet decided which events and with whom I'll be playing."
Bhupathi, tennis' newest super agent, who besides managing Wimbledon champion Brit Andy Murray's business interests is also putting the finishing touches to his star-studded International Premier Tennis League, scheduled for next November 2014 .
Among those who will feature in the tournament include Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Murray besides Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. Bhupathi, however, has failed to make the cut for the season-ending championships, the ATP World Tour Finals in London next month, an event in which he has made five finals, including last year with Bopanna.Source: IANS, Other Agencies, Staff Reporters
