System should keep getting more new players: Ramesh Krishnan


Tennis legend Ramesh Krishnan is impressed with the consistency shown by India’s Davis Cup team in the last few years but wants the system to throw up more players, who can take the side to the next level.

Led by Somdev Devvarman and Yuki Bhambri, India are regularly in contention for a berth in the elite 16-nation World Group. They challenged top sides, Serbia (September, 2014) and Czech Republic (September 2015) at home but could not cross the hurdle.

“It’s a good effort to get to the play-offs itself because the competition in the Asian zone is tough. We are able to somehow scramble through to play-offs. I think the trick is going to be, get past that hurdle,” Krishnan, who was himself India’s Davis Cup hero in his heydays, told PTI.
