And Dubai, because I'm fascinated by the Middle East.

Well not to me if I was a player. I would be too busy with my other commitments in movies, TV, and modelling. After all when you win the Grand Slam 3 straight years in a row who cares what other players are playing?

It would be ALL EYES ON ME! :devil:

++ additional tournaments only if necessary.
