Williams Sisters Visit Dubai Duty Free

http://216.133.247.146/tennis/www/images/news45_pic.jpg


Dubai, UAE, February 27, 2005: American Superstars Venus and Serena Williams eased into their Dubai Women's Open campaign today by making a special visit to the award-winning Dubai Duty Free at the Dubai International Airport.

The pair, who met with Dubai Duty Free Managing Director Colm McLoughlin, spent two hours browsing through the shops and learnt about the operation which last year saw sales surpass US$500 million (Dhs1.8 billion). Both took particular interest in the gold bangles and earrings, and also checked out the latest Sony Ericsson mobile phones.

Venus, who has competed in the Dubai Tennis Championships two times before, last year promised to bring her sister back to show her the many wonders of Dubai.

Mr McLoughlin said: "We are thrilled that both Venus and Serena have decided to come to Dubai together and we can't wait to see them in action on centre court this week."

this is an article reported in the media, obviously it is impoortant enough. There is more than 28 girls in dubai now, for the main draw and a few others in qualifying.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Dubai Duty Free is an amazing place. It's soo beautiful. So many things to see and to buy. I wish I could go more often to Dubai.

Is your definition of beauty gaudy commercialism or were you talking about what's outside the shopping malls?

the last pic is from hong kong in january.....great to hear the sisters arrived early though.
Its hard to choose which to root for if they meet in the semi's. But as it happened in the Nasdaq in 02. Whoever wins that HAS to win the title heh.
