Welcome to Dubai, United Arab Emirates! After the exciting Doha event last week, it's time for another high-paying, player-luring event in the Middle East. American veterans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond, who have been having a fantastic year, lead the field. However, the second seeds, Indian Sania Mirza and Russian Elena Vesnina and third seeds, Slovak Daniela Hantuchová and Agnieszka Radwańska of Poland will be tough challenges. However, two of the biggest challenges could come from wildcards, namely the new partnership of Italians Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone as well as the new Australian team of accomplished doubles player Samantha Stosur who will partner with Casey Dellacqua, who remains on the comeback trail from some severe injuries, albeit quite successfully so far. With so many points, scalps, and dollars on the line in Dubai, motivation is always high making competition fierce. Vote now as the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships begin!
