Mahesh Bhupathi is 15th ranked with 4330 points in 24 tournaments. Sania Mirza is at her her career-best seventh position in the latest WTA doubles rankings.

No. Paes Sania combine has never won an international event. Whereas, Bhupathi Sania combine has won a grand slam. They won the Australian Open once. Buhpathi Sania would have been a better choice and would have had a better chance of winning a Gold in Olympics.
