Leander Paes and Sania Mirza (tennis): Leander Paes, who gave India its only Olympic tennis medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games, will be partnering Sania Mirza in the mixed doubles category.
The duo has already been seen as India's best bet for a tennis medal. Though they won the gold at 2006 Doha Asian Games and a bronze at the 2002 Busan edition, the Olympics will be a different ball game.
It will be a 16-team draw and two wins may take the pair to the threshold of a medal. The draw will be made July 31 and the event will start from Aug 1.
