Somdev Dev verman : new Indian Tennis star
The Chennai Open Tennis Tournament saw the birth of a new Indian star in Somdev Devvarman who sensationally knocked out Carlos Moya in the second round to reach the quarter-finals.
Somdev quelled the challenge of Croatian No.4 seed Ivo Karlovic on Friday with the set score of 7-6, 6-4 in 86 minutes to find a place in the semi-finals.
Somdev’s serve, although not as fast as Karlovic’s thunderbolts, pegged the Croat. Every time Karlov tried to advance to the net Somdev came up with lovely passing shots.
