Viswanathan Anand: My focus is on Boris Gelfand

Posted by Admin On 10:15 AM

When Viswanathan Anand wins, it's no news. For someone who has perfect the art and has almost turned victory into his middle name, any performance a notch lower can have the chess organization nodding in disbelief.

But exactly that is the case now. Having drawn 21 of his last 27 games, questions are being raised about the world chess champion's current form. Ask the man himself, and he is anything but worried.Yes, I've played out a number of draws of late.

I wasn't getting too much space on the board. But I don't feel I've been playing too poorly as such. It's not something that I'm dwelling on. Right now, my focus is the World Championship and it wouldn't help much to cloud my thoughts with past presentation,he says.

Felicitating student ambassadors of NIIT at a promotional event here on Thursday, Anand interact and willingly obliged hordes of autograph-seekers in his usual unassuming way. Looking beyond the recent dark spell of draws, Anand has had three contest wins at Leon, Botwinnik Masters and Corsica, all shorter forms of chess, this year.

With all eyes now fixed on the World Chess contest to be played in May 2012, where Anand will play Boris Gelfand of Israel, the 42-year-old promises it will be an exciting contest. Acquaintance breeds satisfaction, but Anand is not ready to take it easy, though he and Gelfand have played each other quite often over the last two decades.
