Form book:

Albert Ramos-Vinolas has been one of the steady risers in the ranking chart for three consecutive years now. The left-handed Spaniard had a productive 2016; he captured his first ATP World Tour singles title at Bastad, reached the final of Chengdu Open. He also made it to the quarterfinal at Roland Garros, the furthest he has ever reached in a Grand Slam.

Though it will just be his second appearance at the Chennai Open, his form and left-handed game make him a possible candidate to stake claim to the title. The third highest ranked player's fortunes will be keenly followed.
