The Aircel Chennai Open Tournament    30.12.2013 - 05.01.2014
Surface: Hard

This tournament is also running at present.  The obvious contender for the title is Wawrinka, who is  no doubt keen to start his campaign for 2014 with a title win here, and consolidate the strides he made last year.  Letís see.

I would also like to see Paire & Pospisil do well this year, as I like their games.

Fognini retired against Bhambri - I hope he's okay. He has an excellent year last year too & it would be a pity if he is hampered by injury this season.

The Draw:

Todayís schedule for the Quarter-Finals:

Wawrinka -v - Bedene

Pospisil - v- Bhambri

Roger-Vasselin -v-  Sela

Paire -v- Granollers

I'm expecting Wawrinka / Pospisil / Roger-Vasselin & Paire to get to the semi-finals.

Paire was beaten by Granollers in a 3 set quarter final, but Pospisil, Wawrinka & Roger-Vasselin came through.

In todays semi's, Pospisil played well against Wawrinka, but retired injured in the 2nd set. Granollers put up another 3 set contest but lost to Roger-Vasselin.

The number one seed looks set to take the title tomorrow.

The Order of play:

Wawrinka beat Roger-Vasselin 75,62 to win the title here. No surprises there. His opponent did well to get it to 5-5 in the first set, but couldn't get much momentum after losing the first set.
What a treat to see SW's beautiful back hand in action.  Congratulations to him for starting the new season off with a title in hand.

He was a semi-finalist at last years AO, and with this win, could do well there again. Let's see.

Congrats to my man Stan!  Nice win.
