Serbian Janko Tipsarevic wins Chennai Open Singles

Serbia , officially the Republic of Serbia, is a country of Central and Southeast Europe, landlocked and bordering Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro.  Its capital is Belgrade

Chennai is not new and Janko is no stranger here.  He sure would have had déjà vu  ~ last year   Stanislas Wawrinka was the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Japanese qualifier Go Soeda. Tipsarevic marched into the finals and played a tough match losing to  Milos Raonic who  won -:  6–7(4–7), 7–6(7–4), 7–6(7–4).

Janko Tipsarević has won four ATP World Tour titles, two Futures, and nine tournaments in the ATP Challenger Series. Tipsarević also won the 2001 Australian Open Junior title.  He has defeated compatriot Novak Djokovic twice. He looks an aggressive person with trendy glasses, the designer stubble, the tattoos and more. In the Semis, he displayed poor temperament venting out his anger against a poor ball boy.  He has been visiting Chennai every year but returned disappointed last year.  

Sunday, 6th Jan 13 was different.  At  Chennai SDAT Tennis Stadium’s centre court,  the 28-year-old Tipsarevic reached the summit.  After a tough first set, he breathed easy beating  Roberto Bautista Agut,  much like in the semifinal against Aljaz Bedene; he did it with greater verve and style, to win 3-6, 6-1, 6-3.

Last year he had partnered Leander Paes  and won the doubles crown defeating the fourth seed Israeli duo of Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich 6-4, 6-4 in the final, which lasted 73 minutes. It was Paes's sixth doubles title at the Open. Tipsarevic played that  match immediately after losing the singles final.
