    Good for Chennai Open though Nalbandian is no star. People are still likely to flock, for want of choice and good promo by the organisers. We need a real big star, they almost got Nadal last year. They also need to increase the prize money to attract the top guys.

    I miss the chennai open. I used to love going there and watching some great tennis. I am so glad I got to see Boris Becker playing.

    Almost 10 years since Baby Boomboy Krajicek purportedly “tanked” his match at the then Gold Flake Open, I have come to expect little of Chennai’s most glamorous tennis extravaganza. 1998 will probably be the only year when the stars actually lived up to their reputation (That people came to Nungambakkam to worship Becker in thousands is altogether a different matter), but hey look at tge Champions Roster….Golmard, Tabara….somehow the big names barring Moya and Rafter dont seem to click in the first tournament of the calendar year.
