Rohan Bopanna has revealed that he is eagerly waiting for India’s upcoming Davis Cup match-up against Pakistan in Islamabad in September for the Asia/Oceania Group I tie. The last time that India and Pakistan played each other in the international tournament was back in March 1964.

No Indian Davis Cup team has played in Pakistan since March 1964. However, that is set to change after Rohan Bopanna-led India will compete in Islamabad in September for the Asia/Oceania Group I tie. Bopanna and Divij Sharan, India's best two doubles players based on rankings, will be natural picks for the doubles match against a tough Pakistani unit. 

The experienced Indian player revealed that he has no security concerns about playing Davis Cup in Pakistan where he has always enjoyed great hospitality. 

“I am looking forward to the Davis Cup tie in Pakistan. I have spoken to Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, he is a very good friend of mine and he said it will be fine and I have been there a few times, I always found great hospitality from Pakistan. So I have no concerns about it,” Bopanna told PTI sources. 

The 39-year-old tennis veteran also gave his opinion on the recent Wimbledon final between Swiss great Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. The Serbian had edged out Swiss great Roger Federer 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3) for his fifth crown.

“I don’t think there was any loser in yesterday’s final. He was literally one point away from winning his 21st Grand slam. He is 37 and he was still covering the court, the best way possible, so I don’t think he lagged because of his age,” Bopanna added.
