New Delhi: Changing its stance towards Somdev Devvarman's pulling out of the Asian Games squad, the All India Tennis Association (AITA) on Friday said it supports the step taken by the top singles player of the country.

AITA President Anil Khanna said the body understands that it was important for Somdev to be in the top-100 chart and if he again succeeds in getting into that elite bracket, that would also be a "service to the nation".

"The captain (Anand Amritraj) has supported Somdev's decision and we endorse that," Khanna told reporters.
