To Leander!

In Davis cup, India advances to the world group play-offs to play Sweden at home in September. Leander shows us (another to his already growing list of achievements) why he is not only India’s best sportsman and most patriotic but also the most unselfish sportsman. But if there is one man in the Indian sports who can be selfish, it is Leander. He has done so much for India. I think we should name the Arjuna award as Leander Paes award, so that every Indian sportsman knows what passion, commitment & dedication to India is all about.

Leander is someone who makes a mockery of the rankings in Davis cup. I wonder what happens to him when he plays singles on ATP tour. He is hardly a shadow of the Davis Cup Leander. I always joked instead of spending a million and hiring a coach, he could rather bring along a a group of cheering Indian fans waving the Indian national flag. That's enough to stir him up and beat any player in the world. :-)

But I still feel that India's best sportsman is Vishy Anand. His records shouts for himself!!

Maverick, I completely agree with you on Leander. The top 2 Indian sportsman are definitely Vishy & Leander...It would be a good debate as to who is no 1. I will go with Leander just because he plays for India & not for himself...but that is not taking anything away from Vishy...he put us on the international stage in Chess...he showed the world that chess is truly Indian!
