New Delhi: All India Tennis Association chief Hironmoy Chatterjee says the national body will decide on the recognition of a newly launched players’ association only after it has a clear understanding of its objectives.
Chatterjee told The Associated Press on Tuesday the AITA is waiting for the players’ body to go through the process of putting together its rules and objectives, and that it had “not given anything in writing” yet.

The formation of the Indian Tennis Players’ Association (ITPA) was announced Monday within weeks of a confrontation between the AITA and a group of 11 players —including Somdev Devvarman and Mahesh Bhupathi — which had refused to play in a Davis Cup tie against South Korea over management issues.
