Tipsarevic eyes bright start to Chennai Open
World number nine Janko Tipsarevic hopes to build on an impressive campaign in 2012 with a dazzling start to the new season at the ATP Chennai Open.
The 28-year-old Serb, who finished in the top 10 for the second successive year, is seeded second behind world number six Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic at the $430,000 event.
Tipsarevic was confident of doing well in the coming season after ending the year with a 57-28 match record, including a quarter-final berth at the US Open. “I have improved my game in all aspects, but the biggest change came in my mindset and how I was able to keep up with the constant pressure,” Tipsarevic said.
