Bhupathi Sr. told The Hindu: "It will be the most sensible thing, if Mahesh and Leander come back on the tour and they can go down in the history of the game as a greatest doubles pair ever''.
Elaborating on his contention, Mr. Bhupathi said, "They have 24 titles and they can easily overhaul the records of Woodies or John McEnroe and Peter Fleming, if they pair up again''.
Mr. Bhupathi denied that Mahesh and Leander, failed to make an impact with different partners since their split a year ago. "Mahesh had a great season with Max Mirnyi last season, though he didn't fare too well with Josh Eagle and he is back with Mirnyi now. Leander is having good run with David Rikl this season. So, it is not right to assume that they didn't do too well with other partners. What I or anyone would say is they are much better as a pair than with different partners. They can go for records and it makes a great business sense too'', said Mr. Bhupathi.
Mr. Bhupathi, however, refused to speculate on how soon the possible reunion of the Indian duo would take place. "They have their commitments for the season and it is for them to sort that out'', he said.
