An excited Paes believes Punjab will be a strong contender for the title.
"I am very happy to be a part of Vijay Amritraj's Champions Tennis League 2014 playing for the Punjab Marshalls. I am looking forward to a very competitive and challenging league format that will bring some of the best international tennis to different parts of the country.
