Although it is not a rivalry between the two countries in tennis, there is no cricket-like rivalry in tennis, but if the duo left the Bopanna, then the current player has not played against Pakistan and it is a far-fetched one to visit this neighboring country. This is India's strongest team in the Asia / Oceania region and there is no defeat in the six encounters that have happened since then till now. When it was Pakistan's hostage in 1971, India was given a walkover.

Bhupathi was quite happy with the match against Pakistan. Bhupathi told PTI, "This is a good draw for us, given the depth of our team. We have hoped to win and return to the World Group Playoff (qualifier). Although they both of them have no comment on whether of the government should allow the team to travel, or they are willing to travel to Pakistan or not.

India's coach Zeeshan Ali said, "We know the players of Pakistan very well. I am confident that the team we have and now the way our players are playing and it is improving our rankings, we are definitely strong. Pakistan though it will not be India's team of collapse because none of them are here in the singles player ATP rankings. He has only a good competitive player in the form of Ayesom-ul-Haq Qureshi whose doubles ranking is 67.

Bopanna and Qureshi have played in the past as a team and the pair, famous as the Indo-Pak Express, also had success. Here, 39-year-old Akeel Khan is still playing solo for him. They have Mujammil Mortaza and Hirah Ashiq and Shahzad Khan in the team. Here, the top players of India are close to entering the top 100 ranking of Pranjesh Guneshwaran and Ramkumar Ramanathan singles.
