India's tennis campaign at the Asian Games appears to be falling apart even before the start as a cloud of doubt is now hanging over Rohan Bopanna's participation since the top doubles player is keen to salvage his 2014 pro season by playing on the ATP Tour instead of competing in Incheon.

It has been learnt that Bopanna, who last year became world number three in the ATP doubles rankings, is not happy with his 2014 run and wants to make amends by winning matches on the demanding Tour in the remainder of the season.

If Bopanna decides to opt out of the Indian squad, it will be the country's second big loss as top singles player Somdev Devvarman has already pulled out of the event due to same reason. (Somdev defends his decision)
