DUBAI – A host of tennis megastars are descending on the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium next month for two weeks of action in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
The tournament, which runs from February 17 to 29, will once again feature almost every top name in the game and during the first three days tennis fans are guaranteed to see their favourite player on Centre Court for only Dh55.
The tournament opens by celebrating the 20th anniversary of the WTA event, with Belinda Bencic eagerly awaiting the opportunity to defend her crown.
Standing in her way will be three reigning Grand Slam champions Bianca Andreescu, Karolina Pliskova and top-10 star Kiki Bertens.
Fans of eight-time champion Roger Federer will not be disappointed as he yet again begins the defence of his title when the ATP week gets underway on February 24.
He will once more find himself bidding to overcome competition from many of the world’s best, including recently announced and world number 2 Novak Djokovic, 2019 Dubai finalist and ATP Finals winner Stefanos Tsitsipas, 2018 champion Roberto Bautista Agut, top Italian Fabio Fognini and one of the game’s most entertaining stars, 2019 semi-finalist Gael Monfils.
“With so many top players taking part every year it is going to be a very exciting tournament. We cannot guarantee who will be in the finals, only that there will be many thrilling battles and upsets before the champions are eventually crowned,” said Tournament Director Salah Tahlak.
