Mikhail Youzhny has been susceptible to illness and injury in 2016, retiring midway through a match on at least three occasions. He had his best run in 2008, reaching the quarterfinals of Australian Open and achieving a career-high 2008. It was the same year that he won the Chennai Open title and will be desperately seeking for the same magic when he makes his fourth appearance here.
