Last year's runner-up, Somdev Devvarman is all geared-up for another good show. "Its only going to get better. I'm quite young in my career. Last year was my first full year on tour", says the ace tennis player.
Somdev, World No 126, will be up against World No 85, Rainer Schuettler in the first round. But one can't say if he will go into the match as the underdog. Says former tennis player and sports commentator, Vijay Amritraj, "He's been practicing extremely hard with Andy and so on and so forth. He's had a marvelous 2009. I would probably give Somdev the edge in that particular match."
