Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships 2012 (Men's Day 5)
Fri Mar 02
Held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships remains a firm favourite amongst the top ranked female players on the WTA’s Premier-Event calendar and furthermore holds the accolade of the Middle East’s only ATP 500 tournament. The 2012 line-up of stars is shaping up to be as strong as previous years, and one where some of the world’s best will take on the up and coming stars, all of whom are focused on claiming both valuable ranking points.
2012’s event will follow in the footsteps of an exciting 2011 which celebrated the worlds no 1 Caroline Wozniacki overcoming Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1 6-3 to win the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships and become the first player from Denmark to lift the title.
Novak Djokovic won his third successive Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships title when he defeated top seed Roger Federer 6-3 6-3 on Saturday marking his 20th career title, and preventing the former four-time champion claiming his first title since 2007.
Fans can expect to enjoy special 20th anniversary celebrations as the championships will look back on past stars achievements as well as exciting action on the court with extra seating on Court One for ticket holders to catch the extra games. Dubai Duty Free will continue to run the increasingly popular Ladies’ Day activities, special children tennis clinics, as well as a variety of family-fun and entertainment over the 2-week event.
