The Aircel Chennai open, the only ATP tournament of India and the greatest hangout spot for young tennis players of Chennai and other cities nearby. It is the main tennis attraction of India, but due to lack of funds it has been cancelled and shifted to Pune and is now renamed as Maharashtra Open. For 21 years it has been conducted in Chennai and it has grown fondly in the hearts of all the tennis players, be it professional or amateur or tennis enthusiasts. Being a tennis player from Chennai myself, it was my dream to play on the centre court in front of my home crowd, but surely I’m not alone, every tennis player and tennis coach in India must’ve dreamt of their player playing on home soil in front of the whole world. Everyone who has had the opportunity to go and watch the matches should relate to the fun and cheerful atmosphere. Watching matches was only half of the story of what we did here.
