Star Tennis Player Sania Mirza has given her reaction to Rohan Bopanna’s comment regarding the Tokyo Olympic Qualification. Earlier, Rohan Bopanna accused The Qualification Committee of misleading everyone.
ITF has never accepted an entry for Sumit Nagal & myself. ITF was clear that no changes were allowed after the nomination deadline (22nd June) unless Injury/Illness. AITA has mislead the players,government, media and everyone else by stating we still have a chance.Rohan Bopanna Tweeted
The statement made everyone angry on social media. There was a huge banter on Twitter on this matter.
Sania Mirza replied to this by tweeting the following:
Whaaattt???If this is true then it’s absolutely ridiculous and shameful..by this it also means that we have sacrificed a very good shot at a medal in the mixed doubles if you and I would have played as planned. We were both told that you and sumit’s names hav been given ..
However, the situation has now been de-escalated after the ITF clarified the matter in their tweet.
AITA just confirmed that despite receiving the message from ITF, the entry of Sumit & me cannot be considered. Why did they still mislead everyone that Sumit Nagal & myself still had a chance and mislead everyone. Thank you AITA for clarification for exactly what I said.Rohan Bopanna
