Hours after ace tennis player Leander Paes raised questions on India's tennis team selection for the last two Olympics, world No.1 in women's doubles Sania Mirza, hit out at him, apparently calling him a 'toxic person'.

She wrote, "The ONLY way to win with a toxic person, is not to play!!! #karmaiswatching #zenmode."

Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna had been picked to represent India in the Games and the duo lost in the semifinals before going down in the bronze medal playoff as well.

After Mirza's harsh comments slamming Paes for his statement, Bopanna opted to retweet Mirza's tweet and add his own thoughts to the matter.

He wrote, "At it again!! ...the usual ploy to stay in the news by slanging fellow players in media. #Patriotism."

The bitterness of not getting a shot at the Olympics mixed doubles event continues to rankle Leander Paes. During his interaction with the media after partnering Saketh Myneni in a hard-fought men's doubles loss to Olympic champions Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez in the ongoing Davis Cup, he again reiterated that the country had not sent its best team to the Olympics.

"I can very clearly say that in this Olympics and last Olympics we didn't put the best team forward. This Olympics the mixed doubles was a great opportunity. What more does a man need to do than win four Grand Slams in 14 months. There was no more tournaments to win, I could not create anymore tournaments. Sad. Long story short, let's nurture these kids," Paes said referring to his fantastic mixed double run leading up to the Games.

Seems like the war of words has just begun. But the battle had been ongoing.

Were you surprised that we didn't win a medal in tennis at Rio? Not anymore right? After all if we do not learn to get along with fellow players, how are we to defeat our opponents.
