Indian tennis player Leander Paes set the record for the most number of doubles wins in Davis Cup, also known as the 'World Cup of Tennis', registering his 43rd win in the doubles rubber of the Asia/Oceania Group I tie. Paes teamed with Rohan Bopanna to beat China's doubles pair. India won 3-2 to advance to the World Group Play-offs.Paes had a chance to the make the record when India hosted New Zealand in Pune in February 2017 but doubles was the only match India lost in that tie. What followed in Bengaluru against Uzbekistan was an avoidable controversy as captain Mahesh Bhupathi chose to put Paes on bench, fielding Sriram Balaji with Bopanna. Those were two chances when Paes could have got that coveted record in front of his home fans but now after reclaiming his place in the team on the back of some stellar show in the last few months, he has to do it thousands of miles away from home in alien conditions.
