Somdev Devvarman

Devvarman is the leader for Punjab Marshalls

Somdev Devvarman (Punjab Marshalls)
Somdev has had a challenging year on the circuit but showed signs of a comeback with a crucial Davis Cup win on Day 3 of the tie against Serbia. India’s top singles player has the energy and indomitable spirit to challenge top players. His supreme defensive skills are a treat to watch. The former Asian Games and Commonwealth Games Gold medalist is definitely one of India’s biggest attractions of CTL.

Venus Williams (Bangalore Raptors)
The former World No. 1 has a penchant for the saree and Bollywood dance moves. In a recent interview, the seven-time Grand Slam champion admitted that she loves watching dances in Indian films.

The American superstar already made it to Bangalore back in 2008 when she played in a WTA event there. It’s amazing to see that six years later she still has the same passion and hunger for the game. Indian tennis lovers can learn so much by simply watching her.

Martina Hingis (Hyderabad Aces)


Martina Hingis has a huge fan following in India

The Swiss Miss with her bright smile will be here to capture the hearts of her Indian fans. The flexibility and smoothness that she still possesses on the court is absolutely impressive.

Even this year, the Swiss star reached the US Open women’s doubles final, eight years after retiring for the second time. With her repertoire of silken strokes and deft touches, she will be a delight to watch.

The five-time major winner will also get the honour to start things off in the CTL. The event kicks off with an intriguing battle between old foes Martina Hingis and Venus Williams in Hyderabad on 17th November.

Agnieszka Radwanska (Pune Marathas)
The Polish No. 1 has often been compared to Martina Hingis. Like the Swiss Miss, the current World No. 6’s game is also based more on tactics than on power. It will be interesting to see how Radwanska and Hingis square off against each other on 23rd November.

With her guile and agility, the former Wimbledon runner-up often comes up with some clever shot on the court that is talked about for days. Let’s wait and watch what trick the Pole has in her sleeve to surprise her Indian fans.

Saketh Myneni (Pune Marathas) and Ramkumar Ramanathan (Bangalore Raptors)


Saketh Myneni will have a great learning experience

Two of the most talked about Indian players will hog the limelight at the CTL. Saketh has had a fabulous last few weeks. After clinching the Asian Games mixed doubles gold, he carried on the momentum to take the Indore Challenger singles title and the Pune Challenger doubles title.

Ramkumar Ramanathan is one of the brightest boys to come up the ranks. He recently won the ITF Futures title in Raipur which was his fifth ITF Futures trophy of the year. He is in red hot form and playing with supreme confidence. Getting a chance to play alongside such accomplished superstars in CTL will be a good learning experience for both Ramkumar and Saketh.
