India's national tennis selectors have dropped Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna from the Davis Cup squad to take on New Zealand after they refused to play in the Olympics. The All India Tennis Association said in a press release on Saturday that the players had been dropped for ''the stand taken by them regarding selection for the Olympics team'' when both had refused to partner India's top-ranked player Leander Paes. Paes and Somdev Devvarman are also not in the team after they asked to be left out. India announced a new-look team comprising Yuki Bhambri, Vishnu Vardhan, Saketh Myneni, Divij Sharan, Sanam Singh and Sriram Narayanaswamy for the Sept. 14-16 tie to be held in the northern Indian city of Chandigarh.
