Bhupathi also slammed AITA Chief Executive Officer Hironmoy Chatterjee for his remarks against the rebel players but said that he and other players were not interested in joining issues with him.
"I have read what Chatterjee had said at the press conference (on Sunday). He had used harsh words like we are blackmailing the AITA. That has not gone down well with many of us. We can say so many things about which the AITA has not done for so long. There is no reason why the AITA should not contact us," he said.
"Hope something comes out soon. It was very disappointing to see India losing to South Korea but if the AITA remains like this more disappointment will be in store against Indonesia in April," he added.
AITA had agreed to most of the demands of the players like business class air travel and an increase in their share of Davis Cup prize money, but it had put its foot down on selection matters.
The players had demanded that captain S P Misra, coach Nandan Bal, physiotherapist Sanjay Singh and doctor Vece Paes be changed. AITA had agreed but said the players cannot impose their choice as selection was prerogative of the federation. AITA had removed Bal, Paes and Singh, but stuck with Misra for at least the Korea tie.
