Welcome To The Chennai Open

Big-time tennis rolled into Chennai city this month and we went to check it out. Sarah, the former sports biz reporter, looked a little out of place sitting in the stands like a regular Josephine fan, but she appreciated not having to file a story five minutes after the end of a match.

The event seemed eerily similar to tennis back home, complete with the snazzy luxury car sponsorship. Here's the stadium and the eager India press doing interviews, amping the excitement. Just like home.

The usual cornucopia of vendors were scattered about, this time with interesting names. Fresh & Honest. Is that to differentiate yourself from other stalls? Ouch. Feel free to go, er, whole hog or pig out at this dog stand.

The sun was beating down for early matches, a happy accident for the sponsors of the cheering signs. Or not an accident at all... Enjoying the action.

So who won? James went to the thrilling marathon final but, uhm, isn't that what is for?
