Form Book:

With an elbow injury and subsequent surgery ruling out of action for more than six months, Tommy Robredo had nothing to write home about. The former Top-10 player who started the year ranked No. 42 in the world saw his rankings take a tumble. He finished the year ranked an unenviable No. 358 in the world.

The veteran tennis player will be making an appearance at Chennai Open after a 12-year gap, with his previous two visits resulting in a semifinal loss. With a lucky main draw entry in Chennai, Robredo will be looking to rebuild his career from scratch.
