Name Change?

I dont think they are "TaTa" this year. It seems they have had yet another name change:

Goldn Flake>Tata>Chennai Open

Re: Name Change?

The website says Chennai Open Tennis Championships. Looks like no one was willing to write a check big enough to be a 'Title Sponsor'.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Name Change?

Re: Name Change?

I think the moderators need to change the name of the tournament thread from "Tata Open" to "Chennai Open" on the main page ..
