Berdych to play in Chennai Open

Chennai, Nov 15, 2012, PTI:
Some of the top tennis players, including world No 6 Tomas Berdych and No 9 Janko Tipsarevic, are set to take part in the 18th Aircel Chennai Open 2013 to be held here from December 31.

This will be 26-year-old Berdych’s second visit to the tournament, while Tipsarevic will open his new season at the Chennai Open for the fifth successive year.

“We are pleased to announce the participation of two top-10 players. Tomas Berdych had a huge fan following in India after he reached the semifinals in 2011. He has had a great year thus far and we are sure he will continue his winning streak in Chennai,” president of Tamil Nadu Tennis Association, M A Alagappan said.

Berdych, who started 2012 with a win in the Hopman Cup for the Czech Republic with compatriot Petra Kvitova, continued his top form throughout the year. He reached his career best at the US Open Championships where he stalled the progress of Roger Federer to enter the quarterfinals.

In September, Berdych led the Czech team to victory to set-up a face-off against Spain in the Davis Cup final which would be held later this year. Tom Annear will be the tournament director.
