And now, Nadal’s confirmed

his entry for the Chennai Open 2007. Nalbandian nodded earlier. Interesting Chennai Open ahead?

“The Chennai tournament is a great event and the enthusiasm of the crowds is very encouraging. I was unfortunate to miss it out last year due to injury,” said Nadal in a statement.

“I cherish my doubles title in Chennai. I hope to make good in singles this time,” the world No 2 added.

The only time the Spaniard participated in the event was in 2004 – as a rookie – and suffered a first-round exit by losing to Frenchman Thierry Ascione in the singles. But Nadal made amends by teaming up with compatriot Tommy Robredo to win the doubles title.

Jan 1 – 7, 2007 it is.
