Sixth-ranked Czech player Tomas Berdych heads an impressive field of four top-20 players in the Chennai Open which starts on Monday.
World No.9 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia and former champions Marin Cilic of Croatia (15) and Stanislas Wawrinka (17) of Switzerland are the other big names in the field.
Also among the field is Frenchman Benoit Paire, who showed good form in 2012 and has risen to 47 in the ATP rankings, along with Dutchman Robin Haase, Taiwan's Yen-Hsun Lu, and Japan's Go Soeda.
Berdych, who defeated Roger Federer in the quarterfinals of this year's US Open, is returning to Chennai after missing the previous year.
