Chennai Open | Napolitano, Fonio emerge victorious

Kaichi Uchida was nowhere close to his best. The 29-year-old Japanese, who had reached the semifinals of two Challengers last year and was ranked in the world’s top 150 last year, hardly put a foot right as Italy’s Stefano Napolitano, the fifth seed, scripted a convincing 6-1, 6-2 win in the first round of the Chennai Open ATP Challenger tennis championship here on Monday.
