Indian Aces will have to face Singapore Slammers in the finals of the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) 2015 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Sunday.
The IPTL is all set for an epic climax as this will be a golden opportunity for the home side to lift the title and also grab the $1-million prize money.
But it will not be a cakewalk for the Slammers when they will lock horns with the in-form Aces. The Aces have almost been invincible in the IPTL 2015 until the Slammers got the better of them on Saturday by 27-21.
The star of the show was none other than world no 4 Swiss Stan Wawrinka, who pulled off a thrilling victory against Bernard Tomic at the same venue. Wawrinka almost lost the match as Tomic relentlessly troubled the Swiss. But he kept his nerves and came back from behind to win 6-5.
Men's Singles: Stan Wawrinka vs Bernard Tomic (probable)
These two are supposed to meet yet again in the finals of the IPTL 2015 on Sunday. Tomic will leave no stone unturned to seek revenge for the Aces against the Slammers.
Legend's Singles: Carlos Moya vs Fabrice Santoro (probable)
Carlos Moya defeated Fabrice Santoro 6-2 in their last encounter on Saturday. They will yet again light up the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Sunday in the IPTL 2015 finals. Santoro fell ill during the Dubai leg of the tournament and as a result Moya got a walk-over. And in the Singapore leg on Saturday, Santoro struggled against the Spaniard. Indian Aces fans will be hoping that Santoro is all set and fit to play on Sunday and help their favourite side claim the title.
Women's Singles: Belinda Bencic vs Agnieszka Radwanska (probable)
Radwanska will look to continue with her positive run in the IPTL 2015. Radwanska, currently the world no 5, was no lacklusture when she took on Bencic on Saturday. Radwanska broke Bencic thrice in their last clash to win 6-3. The 18-year-old Bencic will have to rise to the occasion for the Slammers if they would want to win against the upbeat Indian Aces yet again.
Men's Doubles: Kyrgios/Melo vs Dodig/Bopanna (probable)
Rohan Bopanna and Ivan Dodig will look to seek revenge against Nick Kyrgios and Marcelo Melo in the men's doubles event in the final of the ITPL 2015 on Sunday. Indian Aces rested Bopanna on Saturday and Tomic partnered Dodig. This combination did not work and the Aces suffered a defeat (4-6) at the hands of the World no 1. The Aces will look to get back to their original partnership when they take on the Slammers in the finals.
Mixed doubles: Brown/Pliskova vs Bopanna/Mirza (probable)
Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna of the Indian Aces will join hands in the finals of ITPL 2015 against Karolina Pliskova and Dustin Brown. When these two pairs locked horns, Pliskova and Brown looked formidable and handed the Indian Aces stars a 6-3 defeat. This is likely to be one of the most riveting contests of the evening.
