Two-time defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka has been given the top billing for the next year’s season-opening Chennai Open 2016 that is scheduled to be held from January 4-10 in India.

The fourth-ranked Wawrinka will be joined by big-serving South African Kevin Anderson (No. 12) and former runner-ups Roberto Bautista Agut (25) and Aljaz Bedene (45).

Besides, Frenchman Benoit Paire (19) – who recently bagged the ‘ATP Comeback Player of the Year’ award – will also be one of the top contenders for the title.

Bhambri to lead Indian charge

Having made it to the To 100 of the ATP rankings by flourishing in the Challenger circuit this year, 91st-ranked Yuki Bhambri will be India’s best bet at the country’s premier tournament.

Bhambri, 23, winded up the year with an impressive 52-22 record that includes 3 Challenger titles and as many runner-up trophies from 2015 alone.
