Rohan Bopanna goes from singles to doubles in personal life as well
India’s top doubles star Rohan Bopanna has gone from singles to doubles in his personal life as well.
The 31-year-old Bopanna married Supriya Annaiah in a ceremony in his hometwon of Coorg earlier today. Coorg is situated in South India.
The duo got engaged earlier this year and in a recent interview, Bopanna spoke about his latest partnership, “I met Supriya through some common friends, and I have known her for a while now. Supriya is very supportive of my choices, and very understanding of my demanding schedule. She keeps me grounded, and she knows exactly when I need my own space. She respects my priorities and let’s me handle them the way I am used to.”
The wedding was attended by some of the biggest names in Indian tennis – including Bopanna’s 2012 doubles partner Mahesh Bhupathi, his wife and actress Lara Dutta Bhupathi, Somdev Devvarman, Bopanna’s coach Scott Davidoff and former Davis Cupper Mustafa Ghouse.
Not surprising that Leander Paes was absent. Paes had a fallout with Bhupathi and Bopanna over the Olympic selections earlier this year. India’s top female tennis player Sania Mirza was invited to the wedding but could not make it due to other committments and sent her wishes to the couple on the micro blogging site, Twitter.
Bopanna is currently ranked no. 12 in the doubles rankings and will team up with American Rajeev Ram on the ATP Circuit in 2012.
