World Chess Championship 2014: GM Sasikiran says Anand on Track to Challenging Carlsen
"The way he bounced back winning Candidates and Bilbao (recently) speaks volumes about Anand's determination. Certainly, he's on track," Sasikiran told the Times of India.
Sasikiran said: "He did not play that badly during the World chess championship in Chennai. Had it not for the few blunders he did in the middle, the result would have been completely different."
"I'm sure things would start looking better in terms of getting sponsors after our historic win in the Chess Olympiad. We may think of organising big tournaments (like Bilbao Masters)," he said.
"Team game is all about complementing and backing each other. Thankfully we all did well and at the same time we maintained a fine strategy with coach RB Ramesh. Both the factors played in our win," he said.
