Mahesh Bhupathi to quit tour after 2013

Posted By: Pti
Kolkata, Dec 3: Indian doubles tennis ace Mahesh Bhupathi on Sunday said 2013 will be his last year on tour as he has retirement in mind. "I've had a great career. I don't enjoy leaving my baby alone and going for tours so much. I am happy to call it a day," Bhupathi, who has a career Grand Slam in mixed doubles, said.

In the city for a promotional programme, the 38-year-old said, "I've had the opportunity to play alongside many great players..."

"From Todd Woodbridge to Max Mirnyi to Leander Paes to Mary Pierce to Martina Hingis, it has been a great ride for me," he said.

He also spoke about Sachin Tendulkar and said that critics should leave the Little Master alone.

"He does not need to prove anything to anybody. He has scored 100 centuries. People in the media writing about him have no idea. He will take the right decision at the right time," Bhupathi said.
