10000$ Muzaffarnagar, India, Jan30, Winner: Ksenia Palkina

10000$ Muzaffarnagar, Utta Pradesh, India

The place:
Muzaffarnagar is a medium-sized city in the western part of the state of Uttar Pradesh in India. According to the 2001 census it has a metropolitan population of 331403. It is mainly an industrial town with sugar, steel and paper being the major products. Sugar canefarming is practised widely in the surrounding district. It boasts the highest per capita income in the country. The Jaggery (heated sugar cane juice) market in Muzaffarnagar is the largest in the world. It is situated in the middle of the Delhi-Dehradoon Highway. Unfortunately, it is known for high rates of crime and community inflicted violence.
The city is home to many cinemas, restaurants and pubs. The more famous cinemas include Meenakshi Cinema, Chandra, Alankar and Brij. The restaurants of interest include Ajay Da Dhaba, Nandis, Mool Chands, Cheetal Grand and Mool Chand Resorts.
There has been a recent surge in health clubs and gyms around the city, with the population becoming more upwardly-mobile. Services Club near Prakash Chowk is one of the older health and sport establishments, providing a swimming pool, squash, tennis, badminton and basketball courts, pool and billards, and an auditorium for cultural events. The sports stadium on Meerut road is another such establishment. They have a twin swimming pool (one for adults, one for kids), a gym and a ground for athletics.

The older parts of the city have a [Mughal] feel to them. Forty percent of the population is Muslim. There is a sizeable Sikh and small Christian population as well. Even though the majority remains Hindu, Muzaffarnagar one of the most culturally balanced cities in the country. The statue of Shiv Chowk in the centre of the city is a major tourist destination. The prime shopping and financial hub of the city is the Court Road area which has the District Courts, regional seed market, SSP and other leading corporate and major bank offcies.

The historical towns of Meerut site of the rebellion of 1857 and Hastinapur are close by. Nearby towns are New Delhi, Dehra doon, Saharanpur and Mussoorie.

The tournament:
Surface: Grass
Previous Winners:
2003: Rushmi Chakravarthi IND d. Cheli Bargil ISR 60 64

In 2003 Rushmi easily won this tournament with wins over Orawan Lamangthong (THA), Ludmila Richterova (CZE), Diana Costa (POR), Yulia Vorobyeva (RUS) and Cheli Bargil in the final. Ludmila Richterova gave her comeback here after years of absence under her name Razivalova. Yulia Vorobyeva had one of her best results here in her young career and Diana Costa from Portugal came the long way to India to reach a QF. Obviously Diana has retired now. Shocking: Katie Miles reached the QF after beating two local girls
