Mexico World Chess Championship 2007 - Participants - Viswanathan Anand

Update 2008-07: Viswanathan Anand against Vladimir Kramnik on the World Chess Championship Match 2008 (WCC Match 2008) in Bonn, Germany!

The World Chess Championship Mexico 2007 will take place in Mexico City (Mexico), beginning 12th September.

The Indian grandmaster Viswanathan Anand is considered as the main pretender for winning World Chess Championship Mexico 2007. Now, he is top rated player in the world (2792) and also he is one of only four chess players, which crossed 2800 elo rating (the others are Kasparov, Kramnik and Topalov).

Anand is former FIDE world champion. He won the FIDE World Chess Championship in 2000 after defeating Alexei Shirov in the final match held at Teheran. In 2002 he lost the title after Ruslan Ponomariov won the FIDE knockout tournament. This year in Mexico it is time to get the world chess title back.

In October 2003 Anand became FIDE World Rapid Chess Champion. Anand is widely regarded as the world's finest Rapid Chess player. He has won countless major rapid chess events: Corsica (6 yrs in a row from 1999-2005), Mainz (8 yrs in a row from 2000-2007), Leon 2005 and 2007, Eurotel 2002, Fujitsu Giants 2002 and the Melody Amber (5 times -- and he won the rapid portion of Melody Amber 7 times).

Personal life: In 1996 Anand got married to Aruna. She said: "I did not realise I was getting married to a bigshot" [read full interview with Anand's wife Aruna...]
