Leander Paes

</tr></table> Leander Adrian Paes (born 17 June 1973) is an Indian professional tennis player who typically plays in doubles events on the ATP Tour and Davis Cup. Having won eight doubles and seven mixed doubles Grand Slam titles and finishing as runner up in numerous other Grand Slam finals, he is considered to be one of the greatest and most respected contemporary doubles and mixed doubles players in the world. He is the oldest man to have won a grand slam title. He is among the most successful professional Indian tennis players and is also the former captain of the Indian Davis Cup team. He is the recipient of India's highest sporting honour, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, in 1996–1997; the Arjuna Award in 1990; and the Padma Shri award in 2001 for his outstanding contribution to tennis in India. Paes completed the career grand slam in men's doubles after winning the Australian Open in 2012.[1] He is the sports ambassador of the Indian state of Haryana.[2] Apart from his fifteen Grand Slam victories in doubles and mixed doubles events, he is famous for his several memorable Davis Cup performances playing for India and also for winning a bronze medal for India in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. He also achieved the rare men's doubles/mixed doubles double at the 1999 Wimbledon tournament. His consecutive Olympic appearances from 1992 to 2012[3] make him the first Indian and first & only tennis player to compete at six Olympic Games (shooters Karni Singh and Randhir Singh and luger Shiva Keshavan earlier competed in five Olympics Games). After winning the mixed doubles Wimbledon title in 2010, Paes became only the second man (after Rod Laver) to win Wimbledon titles in three different decades.[4] In 2010, he joined the Board of Directors of Olympic Gold Quest,[5] a foundation co-founded by Geet Sethi and Prakash Padukone to support talented athletes from India in winning Olympic medals.[6] Apart from the ATP circuit, he also plays in World TeamTennis for the Washington Kastles, being on the 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 championship teams. The 2011 and 2012 Kastles are the only team to complete an undefeated season at 16–0 and the Kastles did it in back to back years. They are the only professional sports team in history to complete back-to-back undefeated seasons and went on to win 34 matches in a row. This set the record for the most consecutive game/match wins by a major pro sports team. He was named Male MVP for 2009 and 2011 for all of World Team Tennis.[7]

Early life

Leander was born in Calcutta, India on 17 June 1973 to a Goan father. Vece Paes and Jennifer Paes were his parents and he was raised in Kolkata. He was educated at La Martiniere Calcutta, and the St. Xavier's College of the University of Calcutta. His parents were both sports persons. Vece was a midfielder in the bronze medal-winning Indian field hockey team at the 1972 Munich Olympics.[8] His mother captained the Indian basketball team in the 1980 Asian basketball championship. Paes enrolled with the Britannia Amritraj Tennis Academy in Madras (Chennai) in 1985, where he was coached by Dave O'Meara.[9] The academy played a key role in his early development. Leander earned international fame when he won the 1990 Wimbledon Junior title and rose to no. 1 in the junior world rankings.

Personal life

Paes is a direct descendant of Bengali poet Michael Madhusudan Dutta through his mother. Previously having dated Bollywood actress Mahima Chaudhary, he was also in a live-in relationship with Rhea Pillai, with whom he has a daughter .

In 2013, there were reports that Leander Paes and Rhea were headed for a divorce.[10][11] Neither of them officially spoke about this to the media. Then came the reports that they aren't married but are in a live-in relationship.[12] Reports in 2014 were that the problem continued, and that Paes had lodged a complaint about his wife concerning their daughter's health. Commissioner Rakesh Maria has taken up the matter, which is to be resolved in 15 days.[13]

Career

Early career (1991–1997)

Paes first won titles at the Junior US Open and the Junior Wimbledon and he turned professional in 1991.[14] He rose to the number 1 in the world junior rankings.[15] In 1992, he reached the quarter finals of the doubles event in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics with Ramesh Krishnan.[16]

He went one better at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, where he beat Fernando Meligeni to win the bronze medal, thus becoming the first Indian to win an individual medal since KD Jadhav won bronze at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics more than four decades earlier.[17] Paes cited the match as one of his greatest performances on the court, in part because his wrist was severely injured.[18] He was awarded the highest sporting honour by the government of India, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna in 1996.[19] His first successful year in the ATP circuit came in 1993, when he partnered Sébastien Lareau to reach the US Open doubles semifinal. After having a moderate season in 1994, he reached the quarter-finals of the 1995 Australian Open doubles with Kevin Ullyett. From 1996, he partnered with fellow-Indian Mahesh Bhupathi, which would prove to be a winning combination. Their first year was not a very successful one, especially in the Grand Slams, with a round of 32 finish at Wimbledon being the best. 1997 proved to be a much better year for the team of Paes and Bhupathi, with the semifinals of the US Open their best Grand Slam result. Paes climbed the doubles ranking from no. 89 at the beginning of the year to no. 14 at the end of the year.[20]

Rise in doubles (1998–2002)

The doubles team of Paes and Bhupathi grew stronger in 1998, reaching the semifinals of three Grand Slams, the Australian Open, the French Open, and the US Open. In the same year, Paes had two of his biggest singles results in the ATP tour. The first one came by winning an ATP singles title at Newport, and the second was beating Pete Sampras, 6–3, 6–4, at the New Haven ATP tournament in their only meeting throughout the career.[21][22][23][24] In 1999, the duo reached the finals of all four Grand Slams, winning Wimbledon and the French Open, thus becoming the first Indian pair to win a doubles event at a Grand Slam. Paes also teamed up with Lisa Raymond to win the mixed doubles event at Wimbledon. The year also marked his ascent to the no. 1 ranking in doubles.[25] The following year, Paes partnered with Sébastien Lareau for the Australian Open and Jan Siemerink for the French Open, losing in the first round on both occasions. Paes teamed up again with Bhupathi for the US Open, but lost in the first round again. The duo had a disappointing second round exit to Australian duo of Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde at the Sydney Olympics, despite high hopes.[26] Paes was given the honour of carrying the Indian Flag at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics.[27] In spite of a winning the French Open in 2001, the team of Bhupathi and Paes had first-round exits in the other three Grand Slams. Paes was awarded the Padmashri by the Government of India in 2001.[28] The duo of Paes and Bhupathi won the gold medal at the 2002 Asian Games in Busan.[29] In 2002, Leander paired up with Michael Hill for a number of tournaments, with moderate success.

2003–2007

Between 2003 and the present, Paes has increasingly focused on his doubles and mixed doubles game. Leander won the mixed doubles events at the Australian Open and Wimbledon with Martina Navrátilová, both in 2003. Weeks after the win at Wimbledon, Paes was admitted to the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando for a suspected brain tumour that was later found to be neurocysticercosis, a parasitic brain infection. While being treated, he had to miss the US Open, but he recovered by the end of that year.[30] In the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, he paired up with Bhupathi, failing again at the semifinals stage. His next Grand Slam success was in the US Open doubles event in 2006 with Martin Damm. Paes led the Indian tennis team at the Doha Asian Games in 2006 and won two golds in the men's doubles (partnering Bhupathi) and mixed doubles (partnering Sania Mirza).[31][32] Paes maintained his doubles ranking in the top 20 in the world between 2005 and 2007.[33][34] With wins in the Rotterdam and Indian Wells, Paes took his doubles tally to 38.[35][36][37]

2008

Paes and Bhupathi took part in the men's doubles at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. They were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka,[38] who went on to win the men's doubles gold medal.[39] Later in 2008, with Cara Black, he won the 2008 US Open mixed doubles title.

2009

In 2009, he won the French Open[40] and US Open Men's doubles titles with Lukáš Dlouhý[41] and was the runner-up in mixed doubles at the US Open.

2010

He began the 2010 season in good form, again winning the Australian Open mixed doubles title with Cara Black.[42] This was the pair's third consecutive Grand Slam final and the fourth overall

In the 2012 Summer Olympics, the Indian pair (partner Vishnu Vardhan) lost to French team Michaël Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6–7, 6–4, 3–6[48]

Paes and Štěpánek advanced to the final of the men's doubles at the 2012 US Open after their Spanish opponents, Marcel Granollers and Marc López, retired because of injury.[49][50] However the duo lost in the final of US Open 2012 to the Bryan brothers.[51]

Paes and Štěpánek kicked off the ATP World Tour Finals with a win against Pakistan's Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Dutchman Jean Julien Rojer, 6–4, 7–5.[52] They made it to the semifinals, where they were eliminated by eventual runners-up Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna.

2013

Paes won the 2013 US Open men's doubles with Radek Stepanek defeating Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares 6-1, 6-3. This is Paes' 3rd US Open men's doubles title and 14th Grand Slam title.[53] In January 2014, Government of India announced its 3rd Highest Civilian Award Padma Bhushan for Paes.[54]

He also has reached to the double’s final of Delray Beach Open.

Davis Cup career

Leander Paes started his Davis Cup career in 1990 at the young age of 16, when he partnered Zeeshan Ali in doubles to beat the Japanese team in a gruelling five-set encounter. He is considered one of the top Davis cup players for his country, with a record of 86–31 overall, as of January 2012.[55][56] He played an important role in the Indian Davis cup team that reached the World Group from 1991–1998. He was part of the Indian Davis Cup team that reached the semifinals of the 1993 Davis Cup with wins against Switzerland and France, eventually losing to Australia. In singles, his major wins came against French duo of Arnaud Boetsch and Henri Leconte in Fréjus, France in 1993, Wayne Ferreira in 1994, and Goran Ivanišević in 1995 when India defeated Croatia, Jan Siemerink in 1995 to defeat Netherlands, and Jiří Novák in 1997.[57][58] He teamed up with Bhupathi to beat Hirszon and Ivanisevic of Croatia in 1995, Martin Damm and Petr Korda of the Czech Republic in 1997, Nicolás Massú and Marcelo Ríos of Chile in 1997, Broad and Tim Henman in 1998, and Simon Aspelin and Jonas Björkman of Sweden in 2005. In 2007, Leander has three wins (two doubles and one singles) and no losses in the Davis Cup.

In 1993, ranked No. 197 he lost to No. 238 Fernon Wibierin the first round of qualifying at Wimbledon. Three weeks later he beat No. 25 Arnaud Boetsch on clay (not his best surface) in straight sets in the Davis Cup. He also defeated Henri Leconte in that same week and even though Ramesh Krishnan closed the tie out by beating Rodolphe Gilbert in a thrilling five-setter, the architect of that victory was Paes. Even as his career as a singles player on the ATP circuit floundered, Paes would always find a way to do the trick for India in Davis Cup.

In 1994, ranked No 143, he lost in the first round of a Challenger to No 208 Louis Gloria. Four weeks later, he conjured up a miracle of sorts to destroy World No. 13 Wayne Ferreira in straight sets in the Davis Cup.

In 1995, ranked No 130, he managed to beat Croatia's World No 7 Goran Ivanišević (1992 and 1994 Wimbledon singles finalist) in a controversial five-setter on grass. Jan Siemerink, in 1996, then ranked No. 20, also fell to Paes' Davis Cup inspired play. As did Czech Jiří Novák.

Year-end finals

Paes appeared with Bhupathi in six season finales.[59]

In 2011, they appeared, for the first time since 2002, after securing qualification in mid-October. They were eliminated in the semifinals.

Paes played at the year-end championships with Bhupathi from 1997–2000 and in 2002, reaching three finals. In 1997, they lost the final to Rick Leach and Jonathan Stark. They lost the 1999 final to Sébastien Lareau and Alex O'Brien. In 2000, they lost the final to Donald Johnson and Pieter Norval.

Playing style

Leander is regarded as having a strange playing style.[60] He varies his play as the match goes on; he is one of the best volleyers and a talented dropshotter.[61] His strategy at net play is worthy of study by budding tennis players, and makes him one of the greatest interceptors in the game.[62] His volleying techniques were learnt from former Indian player Akhtar Ali.[63]

Acting career

Leander made his film debut in Ashok Kohli's Rajdhani Express, a socio-political thriller.[64] He has also been offered his first Hollywood script.[65]

Partnership with Mahesh Bhupathi

File:LeeAndHesh1.jpg
Leander Paes and his longtime doubles partner Mahesh Bhupathi

The duo of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi were nicknamed the ″Indian Express″. Leander Paes' off-and-on partnership with Bhupathi drew constant media attention in their home country India.[67][68][69] In the 2006 Asian Games, a loss to the Chinese Taipei team in the team event led Leander to question Bhupathi's commitment to Team India.[70] He once stated in an interview that although he and Bhupathi are friends, he did not consider pairing with his former teammate.[71] However, for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, they decided to play together for their country,[72] and lost in the quarterfinals to the eventual champions Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka.[73]

In 2011, the "Indian Express" pair won the doubles title at Chennai Open. They reunited to play in a Grand Slam Tournament after nine years and claimed runners-up in the 2011 Australian Open and reached the semifinals in the year-end championships.[74]

The Indian duo has a 303–103 career record together. They have a higher success rate against various top teams.[75] They have a Davis Cup record of longest winning streak in doubles, with 23 straight wins.[76]

Leander Paes was paired with Vishnu Vardhan at the London Olympics 2012, following the refusal of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna to play with him at the Olympics.[77] Paes threatened to withdraw from the Olympics rather than play with Vardhan, whose world ranking was 296,[78] but withdrew the threat a week later.[79] Paes and Vardhan reached the second round of the tournament, losing to eventual silver medalists Michaël Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France.

Davis Cup Record

The Duo has the longest doubles streak in Davis Cup History.
