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

Goldn Flake>Tata>Chennai Open :wavey:

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

no its not that..its that the TATA Group who were sponsoring it...their contract expired and so our chief minister..she wanted to be a like tournament that was under the govt or whatever so it was her that sponsors it now from our state funds...there are like 11 companies which are supporting it tho!

Hey zara & bad gambler (thanks for the bad rep), I think you know which player I'm asking you to take pictures of. That would be reallly really awesome... And I would thank you so much for it. And of course, enjoy the tournament!

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