Rastogi backs out of players’ revolt

New Delhi: Karan Rastogi, one of the signatories of the letter of complaint against Davis Cup captain Leander Paes sent to the All India Tennis Association, has since done a volte face, saying he has sorted out the issues with his skipper and was willing to play under him.

“It’s about time. After looking at personal (issues) and speaking to the Federation, I have sorted out all the issues with Leander,” Rastogi told PTI.

“Basically, I am willing to play under any captain. Playing for the country is a matter of pride and that comes before any personal ambition,” he added.

Rastogi refused to elaborate on why he had chosen to be a part of the revolt in the first place.

“Obviously, there were some issues. Otherwise, I would not have signed that letter.”

“It was affecting my game and I don’t want that…and that’s my stand,” he asserted.

Rastogi said his decision was not influenced by AITA.

“This is my own decision and nobody else’s,” he said.— PTI
