Indian tennis had a great 2014. However, not all is well with the men, seemingly in a transitional phase, what with old warhorses Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes into the twilight of their careers.

India No 1 Somdev Dervvarman too is not getting any younger, and at 29, injuries are as much a stumbling block as the loss of form. This has seen the younger generation enter the spotlight, with the likes of junior Grand Slam winner Yuki Bhambri, Asian Games mixed doubles gold medallist Saketh Mercurial Superfly IV Myneni and the ever improving Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan. 2015 will be an acid test for them to prove they are ready to Magista Onda TF fill some rather large boots.

And it all starts at Magista Opus IC the Chennai Open, where a positive result goes a long way in shaping a player’s season, as witnessed through Stanislas Wawrinka’s superb year in 2014, which the Swiss World No 4 himself said was the best of his life.

Like many other junior Slam champions from the country, Yuki has found it difficult to translate his potential into meaningful performances on the international stage.

Having already participated in three of the four majors in his fledgling career, the 22-year-old will hope to have a better year this time around and fulfil the potential that many felt would see him take over the mantle from Somdev as India’s best singles player. “This should be a good year for us, with Yuki and Ramkumar (Ramanathan) having done well, and they will have a successful season,” said Somdev, on the sidelines of the Chennai Open qualifiers, which began on Saturday.

Saketh is poised to get opportunities this year, as his stunning success on the continental level should provide him with the launchpad to build on that particular success.

Another player looking to climb up the ranks is the left-handed Jeevan, who will concentrate on breaking into the top 200 in the rankings. “Obviously, Leander, Mahesh and Nike Magista Obra FG Somdev have been the standard bearers for us, but we’ll try our best to bring as much success as we can. Personally, I want to improve upon my ranking, and get into the top 200,” said the 26-year-old.

With the younger batch fighting their way up, and the seasoned warriors looking to restore reputations, this could be an intriguing year for Indian tennis, especially the men.
