Chennai will be back on the international tennis map for the first time since 2017 with a WTA 250 event to be held from September 26 to October 2.

The chief minister of Tamil Nadu, MK Stalin, handed over the letter of approval from the government of TN to hold the event to Indian tennis legend Vijay Amritraj, who is also chairman of the Tamil Nadu Tennis Association, here on Saturday.

The TN government will be the title sponsor of India’s first-ever $250,000 WTA 250 tournament.

Only formalities remain

Speak with The Hindu, said Vijay Amritraj, we are grateful to the Chief Minister for his support. He’s been brilliant and the pace at which we’ve been able to sort everything out has been incredible.

Only the final formalities, paperwork and protocols have yet to be worked out with the WTA and the tournament owners, he said.

Amritraj said that after my first meeting with the CM, where he was very eager to host an international sporting event, we were able to find a place, especially as events in China were cancelled.

The APG group, based in Hong Kong, is one of the tournament owners whose TNTA will lease the event and has requested that it be moved to Chennai from China.

The work to prepare the stadium is in full swing and we want to put TN on the world map and show the beauty of the state, Amritraj said.

Format

On the tournament format, Amritraj said, it will be a draw of 32 for the singles with 24 direct entries, four wild cards and four qualifiers. We have 24 entries in qualifiers and 16 entries in doubles.

Chennai hosted an ATP Tour 250 event in the first week of January from 1997 to 2017 before the tournament was moved to Pune.
