Mumbai: Eager to play in the upcoming Champions Tennis League (CTL), starting on Monday, veteran Indian star Leander Paes today said that the new league has integrated the international and national players well.

"I think Vijay (Amritraj) has done a great job in the CTL format. CTL goes from city to city and all over the country and also integrates Indian players and Western players of very high level," Paes told reporters here.

"He has got all the Davis Cup players, the Fed Cup players and got the greats playing. You have got (Marin) Cilic who won the US Open, Pat Cash, (Martina) Navratilova, (Martina) Hingis, Tommy Robredo, (Mikhail) Youzhny. I think Vijay's league has integrated nicely the international and Indian players coming together," the 41-year-old said at the sidelines of the Premier Tennis League event, which was earlier known as Maharashtra Tennis League. A part of the Punjab Masters franchise, Paes said he was looking forward to the league.
