India has dealt with a major blow as veteran doubles tennis player Rohan Bopanna has withdrawn from the upcoming Davis Cup tie against Norway, scheduled to be held on September 16 and 17. The 2017 French Open mixed doubles champion, Rohan has decided to skip the Davis Cup tie after being advised to rest due to knee inflammation he suffered.

Taking to social media, tennis veteran revealed that with very heavy heart he had to make a tough call this week about withdrawing from the Davis Cup team against Norway. "I have had to make a tough call this week against my constant love and devotion towards representing the country and withdraw from the Davis Cup team against Norway. I have an inflammation on my knee and have been advised to rest it before I start competing again," tweeted Rohan on Saturday.

Earlier, Rohan Boppana faced a shocking defeat in the first round of the US Open 2022 in both men's doubles and mixed doubles outings. Playing alongside Matwe Middelkoop, the Indo-Dutch pair faltered against the all-Italian duo of Andrea Vavassori and Lorenzo Sonego, losing in straight games 7-6, 6-2. 

Meanwhile, Bopanna paired with China's Yang Zhaoxuan in the mixed doubles event but could not better his performance as he faced yet another defeat against Gabriela Dabrowski and Max Purcell, losing 7-5, 7-5. Rohan played a very crucial role in the Davis Cup World Group I playoffs in March when India locked horns against Denmark. 

Partnering with Divij Sharan, Bopanna won his doubles match to get India the win. India's Davis Cup tie against Norway is scheduled to be held on September 16 and 17. Beside Bopanna, Sumit Nagal, Ramkumar Ramathan, Prajnesh Gunneswaran, Yuki Bhambri and Mukund Sasikumar are the other Indian tennis players participating in the Davis Cup tie.
