ABOUT LEANDER PAES AND MAHESH BHUPATHI
Leander Paes hopes fans will enjoy his and Mahesh Bhupathi’s journey in Break Point. In a statement earlier, he said, “While Mahesh and my on-court partnership was widely covered, our off-court chemistry was largely speculated. This is the first time that our fans will get to see and hear it all, first-hand. Mahesh and I worked really hard to put India on the top of world tennis and we are glad that we are getting a chance to present our story to the world, like never before. Enjoy our journey.”
Mahesh Bhupathi added, “It is no secret that I am reserved when it comes to communicating, so this is a big step for me to relive the journey and put it all out there in the most candid and honest manner. But, at the same time, I am happy that our fans will get to see our journey which was a mix of sweat, perseverance, brotherhood and at times blood and tears as well. This is surely going to be a treat for all, and I am thankful to Ashwiny, Nitesh and Zee5 for giving it everything.”
Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi won eight Grand Slam doubles titles. They dominated the world tennis for quite some time. They were the first ones to reach all four Slam finals in 1999, for the first time since 1952. However, what made them fall apart is still unknown.
