Point to prove for Indian stars at WimbledonLondon: The bickering trio of Leander Paes, Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna will have a point to prove when the Wimbledon Championships start here Monday.

Seeded fourth, Paes will be pairing up with Radek Stepanek of Czech Republic in the men`s doubles. The duos already have a Grand Slam win under their belt in 2012, triumphing at the Australian Open.

Bhupathi and Bopanna, seeded seventh will have more at stake as they held the All India Tennis Association (AITA) to ransom, refusing to pair with Paes at the London Olympics, with the matches also to be held at the All England Club.

The doubles draw Saturday has made things even more interesting with Paes-Stepanek and Bhupathi-Bopanna in the same half. The two teams could square off as early as the quarterfinals.

Paes-Stepanek start their Wimbledon campaign against Colombian combine of Alejandro Falla and Santiago Giraldo. Bhupathi-Bopanna plays Marcel Felder of Uruguay and Malek Jaziri of Tunisia.

Sania Mirza pairing with American Bethanie Mattek-Sands will open her women`s doubles campaign against Alla Kudryavtesa of Russia and American Sloane Stephens.
