Mumbai: Ace tennis star Sania Mirza on Wednesday backed the decision of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi to part ways ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.
The Hyderabadi felt the split of the 'Indian Express' pair was justified as the duo had played together in the Olympics without much success.
"The fact is that Leander and Mahesh have played in the Olympics three times or four times and fallen short. The fact is that they might be the most experienced pair but they have come short. This is Mahesh's view as well honestly," she told reporters during an informal chat here.
