Dubai tennis championships: Women’s top 10 players confirmed

The world’s top 10 female players will descend on Dubai in February for the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, with world No. 1 Iga Swiatek and world No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka leading the star-studded line-up.

Swiatek will be looking to avenge the final defeat she suffered in Dubai last year at the hands of Barbara Krejcikova (world No. 11). Czech star Krejcikova will return to Dubai to defend her crown for the 24th edition of the WTA Tour Tournament, which was recently awarded permanent WTA 1000 status.

“We are absolutely delighted to have so many of the world’s best female players with us here in Dubai,” said Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free, “It demonstrates the magnitude of our WTA1000 event and the esteem with which it is held. To have 18 of the world’s 20 top-ranked players competing here next month underlines how popular this event is, and we are looking forward to another exciting WTA tournament.”

Other names confirmed for the women’s tournament include 2023 Australian Open finalist and 2022 Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina (world No. 3), American ace Jessica Pegula (world No. 5), Arab superstar Ons Jabeur (world No. 6), reigning Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova (world No. 7), two-time Grand Slam semi-finalist Maria Sakkari (world No. 8), 2023 French Open finalist Karolina Muchova (world No. 9) and French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko (world No. 10).

The 2024 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships women’s tournament will run from February 18 to 24, followed by the men’s ATP Tour 500 tournament from February 26 to March 2. Tickets are available via dubaidutyfreetennischampionships.com or at the gate. ICA/Expat Media
