My decision led to Davis success: Gill

Somdev Devvarman and Yuki Bhambri

India beat South Africa 4-1 to enter the elite World Group for the first time in 11 years.
Gill met India’s No 1 Somdev Devvarman and Yuki Bhambri along with the support staff of the team and congratulated them on their performance. “I am happy that my decision last year to insist that only those Indian players who hold an Indian passport play for India has led to success,” Gill said in a statement.

“Our former stars were fading. Today in Devvarman, Bopanna and Bhambri, we have a new young team that will take Indian tennis to new glories in the years to come,” Gill said. “I congratulate them, but I do want to point out that they have to do many years of intensive training, and ‘tapasya’ before they can really hit the top in world tennis.  I am confident they will show dedication, and determination,” he said.
