Bangalore: Veteran Indian tennis star Leander Paes on Saturday, said that the dramatic victory he pulled off along with partner Rohan Bopanna against formidable Serbians was the best comeback effort of his Davis Cup career.
Paes and Bopanna overcame a two-set deficit to beat Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bojolzac in a thrilling five-setter. "Specifically talking about doubles, this is the best I had had in Davis Cup. In singles, I have many like against Korea and many others but winning against this team, the most formidable teams, the best I have," Paes said at the post-match press conference.
