Veteran doubles specialist Leander Paes said on Tuesday his partnership with Rohan Bopanna will be India’s best bet for a medal at the Rio Olympics.It will be Leander’s record-setting seventh appearance at the mega event for his country. But his dream has seen a potential roadblock after falling down the men’s doubles rankings in recent times.He moved up five spots to 46 in the latest men’s rankings but that wasn’t enough to get a direct qualification berth for Rio.Bopanna grabbed that berth after gaining a place in the top 10 rankings and has the luxury of choosing his partner from among Paes, Purav Raja (103) Divij Sharan (114), Saketh Myneni (125), Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan (134) and Mahesh Bhupathi (164) for the Rio Games.”Without a shadow of doubt, Rohan and me are the best team for a medal at Rio. I am sure that AITA (All India Tennis Association) will send the best team in doubles for Rio,” Paes said.BITTER RELATIONBopanna has a history of bitter relation with Paes after refusing to partner him during the London 2012 Games. Paes’ relationship with Bopanna and Bhupathi has been a long-standing issue for Indian tennis.India’s doubles star Rohan Bopanna says the bitterness that had developed between him and Paes in the build-up to the 2012 London Games is “long gone and over” and he was not averse to playing with him again for the sake of the country.Paes won the recent French Open mixed doubles title with his Swiss partner Martina Hingis, his 18th Major victory. But his mixed doubles form didn’t translate into success in men’s doubles with the 42-year-old losing in the quarter-finals of the major event.advertisementPaes, however, remains positive in his approach and said his first-ever mixed doubles trophy at Rolland Garros was a career highlight and showed he has still got it.”This French Open trophy is very special, we have shown the world that Indians can be world beaters,” he added.His advancing age has forced him to face uncomfortable questions regarding his future and willingness to retire, but Paes remained coy to make a call, playing the guessing game when asked again.”One day curtains gonna come down, maybe at Rio, maybe after another Grand Slam, may be after another 2-3 years…the day I feel I am done,” he said.

OTTAWA — Canadians last heard the Bank of Canada’s take on the economy in the early days of summer — and the timing of its next update has the potential to tinge political debate during the federal election campaign.Since the bank’s most-recent public comments in early July, there’s mounting evidence of a slowing global economy mostly due to the escalating U.S.-China trade war — including fresh Chinese tariffs Friday and new threats by U.S. President Donald Trump.The Bank of Canada’s most-recent message underlined the resilience of the domestic economy, and it appeared in no rush to move its policy even as other central banks were poised to lower rates to respond to the already dimming international outlook.Scotiabank chief economist Jean-Francois Perrault predicts the Bank of Canada will take out insurance against potential damage by cutting rates this fall — and perhaps as early as Sept. 4 — because external risks have intensified since July.Perrault says a rate reduction at the start of the federal election — or even the appearance of the bank tilting towards the possibility of a cut — could force political parties on the campaign trail to explain how they would react if things get worse.Former parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page says Canada appears to be well-positioned to handle an economic downturn, but he expects political parties will be challenged to lay out how far they’d be willing to go to stimulate the economy, if necessary.Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz has been meeting this week with his global peers at the Fed’s policy conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo.The Canadian Press
