Leander Paes will take to the court in Chennai Open with a new partner - Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France - as he prepares to defend his title here for the third time in a row later this month.
This is the first time the duo will partner each other in a tournament in which the Indian had won six times in 17 appearances.
