Two-time Chennai Open champion Carlos Moya, who was also voted one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world, found his match with Vida Samadzai, the former Miss Afganistan. Carlos is candid and says the poolside session was a refreshing break from the rigorous matches. "It has nothing to do with Tennis. It helped me to relax my mind and to have fun," said Moya, former world number one. Former Miss Afghanistan who is also the tournament's ambassador also enjoyed her day. "This is only one of the tournaments in South Asia, which has so much of variety of players coming in. It's great fun meeting all of them and learning their cultures. The matches are competitive," said Samadzai. Samadzai's appearance in a bikini for Miss Earth Pageant has denied her entry into her home country. While the Afghan model in exile is all set to make a debut in Bollywood she will be the star attraction in the players' party, a charity match and an auction. Certainly the high voltage adrenalin in the Tennis courts has now moved to off the courts as well.
