Chennai Open 2009



SDAT Tennis Stadium, Venue for Chennai Open ATP Tournament built in 1995 for South Asian Games, it has a floodlit centre with around 5,800 people seating capacity.



Chennai Open Final-Somdev Devvarman lost to Marin Cilic of Croatia 4-6, 6-7 (3) in Chennai on Sunday. It was an electrifying atmosphere with the crowd rooting for Somdev, the Indian finalist. Somdev with his Mother from Meghalaya & Father from Tripura is from Northeast East India but he was no match for Marin Cilic, a 6ft 6, 81 Kg Giant against Somdev 5ft 11, 72 kg Indian. Somdev is expected to do better if he relies more on mental strength rather than raw physical strength against his future opponents.



Doubles Eric & Ram Vs Scherrer & Wawrinka
