Tendulkar is keenly tracking the performance of the Indian athletes in Rio and was seen supporting tennis players Sania Mirza and Prarthna Thombare from the stands.

He watched the women's doubles match alongside Leander Paes, who had lost his men's doubles first round match partnering Rohan Bopanna yesterday.
