JAYSWORLDOFMUSIC had the good fortune of wearing the wrist band of Dubai Tennis Championships to enter the Grand Stand of Dubai Tennis Stadium for the
4th year in succession to see a few matches including the Ladies' Singles Final of the 20th February 2010.The final between Venus Williams and Victoria Azaranka was played in the electrifying atmosphere of the stadium in front of a truly international audiance.Venus was in tremendous form right from the beginning and ,as expected, won the match in straight sets (6-3, 7-5).
This year's Women's' draw, missed some of the big names in women's tennis, like Serena Williams, Justin Henin, Kim Clijsters, Maria Sherapova etc. Svetlana Kuznetsova did not last long. So too Elena Dimentieva and Daniela Huntukova. But still the tournamant was a big success.
The Men's' tournament begins on the 22nd February. As in the past ,this year also most of the top ten players of the circuit including the first four are slated to participate. But Rafael Nadal, nursing an injury, will not be there. But, for us ,the greatest attraction will be Somdev Devburman. Jaysworldofmusic has already secured a few tickets for the matches including the final and are waiting to be a part of the excitement. The organizers of the tournaments have brought out a beutiful "Official Programme"containing all the details of the Championship and players with plenty of pictures. A precious posssession for tennis lovers.
