Chennai: India no. 1 Saketh Myneni and Norwegian Casper Ruud have been granted wild cards for the 22nd Chennai Open tennis tournament that will take place on January 2. Saketh, who is as of now positioned 194th, will show up in Chennai.
"I am excited to get a passage. The early declaration gives me enough time to get ready for the season opener," Saketh said. The 28-player draw has 21 coordinate passages and three special cases — nearby kid Ramkumar Ramanathan being the other. Four qualifiers will fill the rest of the spots. S.P. Misra, director of Aita choice board of trustees, was satisfied to see two Indians in the principle draw. "Both Saketh and Ramkumar have been vital part of the Davis Cup squad. The Chennai Open will help them enhance their positioning," he included. The 17-year-old Ruud, who began the season as junior world no. 1, has effectively made his nearness felt on the Tour by turning into the fourth most youthful player ever to win a Challenger titles, in Copa Sevilla.
