2008 News Archive - Holidays - Deuce in Dubai
07 12 2007
Dubai may not be thought of as one of the world's main centres for tennis, but as with so many things, the emirate is moving fast and welcomes some of the top players into town at the end of February.
Running from February 25to to March 8th 2008, the Dubai Tennis Championships start with the ladies up to March 1st, after which the men take centre court.
The event is renowned for drawing the best players, with last year's men's singles seeing Roger Federer triumph over Mikhail Youzhny in the final, while the ladies event saw Justine Henin beat Amelie Mauresmo to take the title.
Tennis fans will thus be able to enjoy seeing world class players in action while also enjoying the sunshine, sand and fine tourist facilities of the city.
While not relaxing on the beach or enjoying a drink in the bar, adventurous holidaymakers can take in a desert safari or ride a camel.
