The former ace, ranked as high as No. 74 in singles and 24 in doubles in the 70s, will take over the reins for India’s next assignment,the Asia Oceania Group I opener against Chinese Taipei to be played in Indore in January. The 61-year-old Anand,a onetime chess prodigy who went on to win 12 doubles titles on the ATP Tour,most of them in tandem with younger brother Vijay, is widely acknowledged as a keen tennis brain.
