The fourth edition of the Tata Open Maharashtra, one of Asia’s longest running tennis tournaments, organised by the Maharashtra State Lawn Tennis Association, is witnessing top international players including World No. 15 Aslan Karats and defending champion Jiri Vesely vying for the singles title alongside seven other Top 100 players of the world like teenage sensation Lorenzo Musetti and Portugal’s best tennis player of all-time, João Sousa, among others. The tournament is owned by IMG and operated by RISE Worldwide in India.

The Indian challenge is being led by Yuki Bhambri, Ramkumar Ramanathan, Prajnesh Gunneswaran and Arjun Kadhe in singles and three pairs will be seen in action in doubles led by Rohan Bopanna and Ramkumar Ramanathan. They have been handed a direct entry into the main draw despite a strong line-up of international players.
