FIRST-TIMERS V Chennai Warriors might not have any Grand Slam champions in their ranks, but have comprised a team of players who are coming off a successful time on the court.
The Warriors have made a smart move by adding Fernando Verdasco into the squad, owing to which, they might get the desired results in the men’s singles. The Chennai team has also welcomed one of India’s leading doubles players in the ATP challenger circuit, Vishnu Vardhan. The pair of Vardhan and Verdasco are potent enough to keep the debutants in good stead.
Meanwhile, former Australian Open runner-up, Rainer Schüttler, will lead the way in the legends category. The German has been out of action post retirement and it will be interesting to see how the former ATP pro responds.
Britain’s hope, Heather Watson, will try to bring valuable points in the women’s singles and mixed doubles. Indian juniors Dakshineswar Suresh and Sabhyata Nihalani too will represent the Warriors.
The Warriors' profiles say enough of what they can bring to the court:
