Mumbai: Former Davis Cupper Anand Amritraj on Saturday described the ongoing crisis in Indian tennis following the players' revolt against the AITA a shame and said that both the parties should work out a comprise formula and resolve the issue quickly.
"It's a shame. They need to resolve it by talking face to face. This whole thing is now a complete impasse. They (AITA) have picked a team. So you stand behind them and wish them best, hope they can get past Korea and then work out where you go from there," Amritraj told reporters on the sidelines of Maharashtra Tennis League, where he will mentor Mumbai team.
Eleven players, including Mahesh Bhupathi, Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna, had revolted demanding better playing conditions from the AITA. AITA accommodated most of them but the players refused to change their stand, insisting that all their demands be met.
