Cypriot tennis player Marcos Baghdatis is back in action this week as the Champions Tennis League begins its second season.
Baghdatis, an integral member of the Punjab Marshalls team that won the title in 2014, returns alongside former World No. 4 Greg Rusedski, WTA rising star Elina Svitolina and India`s Saketh Myneni.
Play begins on Monday with the Marshalls facing the Mumbai Tennis Masters.
Fronted by Indian tennis legend and global ambassador of the sport Vijay Amritraj, the CTL is the only professional tennis league in India where team captains are Grand Slam champions or finalists and the players are amongst the best in the world. Six city-based franchise teams will compete, with each team playing two home and two away matches. The final will be held on 6 December.
Baghdatis will look to build confidence entering the 2016 ATP World Tour season with a strong showing in India.
