"With the environment I grew up with my parents and I know for these two boys we share the same ideology and when it comes to playing for the country we don't ask where and who our opponents are," he added. "We go out there and represent our country to the best of our ability. I want to commend everyone at the All India Tennis Association (AITA) for this," peas further stated.
