I'd go just for the hotel!

But, Dubai has a lot of money to spend and attract tourists, and this is becoming a really lucritive tournament to win. I wouldn't doubt if they buy Berlin's sponsorship rights in 2 years of something when German Tennis goes bankrupt for good.

Wow, the top 3 in the world will play dubai!!!!!! That's a very good entry list for them!

Amelie will have a hard time to defend I guess!

Hmmm I am a bit dubious.... When Venus and Serena had entered the same Tier 2 before, one has always pulled out (eg Tokyo 2001)... Plus, without bringing politics into it, if MadMan Bush declares war on MadMan Saddam - then I doubt any of the American players will go anywhere near Dubai, or of the tournament will go on at all.....

Lets hope for peace because 3 top players playing a tournament in Dubai can only help further the game of tennis...

Lets also hope that someone talks some sense into madman Bush and his war cronies.

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.
