Chennai: The best matches in a tennis tournament are generally towards the end, but the action kicks off from the word go in the Chennai Open which gets underway on Monday.
There are some great first round matches in store and with some big stars taking the court, this event is all set to sizzle.
Indian tennis' rockstar Somdev Devvarman practiced with familiar foe and former world No. 1 Carlos Moya.
It was his win over Moya that kickstarted Somdev's amazing run last year in the tournament.
Chennai is hoping Somdev does one better and takes home the title this time. But first the wildcard will have to get past German journeyman Rainer Schuettler.
