DUBAI 2004 PREVIEW:

Favourites:

1 – sandg

In impeccable form, followed two consecutive final appearances in Tokyo and Paris with a QF in Antwerp. Like everyone else will have to adjust to the outdoor medium paced courts. Has been thinking with success this year and starts the early favourite.

2 – SpikeyAidanm

After winning Paris, Spikey’s year again looked like its old a weary self, finishing a clumsy 15th in Memphis. The Australian who has QF pts to defend here is vowed to perform well. Expect a QF or better from the current world number one.

3 – K&J fan

Fresh after his Antwerp triumph, K&J fan wasted no time in arriving in Dubai, in an early practice session with kimclijsters4ever, she stilled looked ready to rumble like before. Despite not being seeded here, watch out for K&J fan to make a late run here.

Contenders:

1 – bbypk

Bbypk never has a poor week, he spends 365 days of the year training or doing activities to enhance his performance. The Spaniard, yet to win a title, usually does well in higher tiered tournament. He should peak at the end of the tournament.

2 – butch

Despite finishing 9th in Memphis, world number 4 butch is without any impressive results this year. However playing in his home continent of Africa will give him more confidence. We have a feeling this might be the one he breaks through…

3 – petosp

Petosp is always a contender, renowned for going for a trio of upsets for big points. Such a tactic may be questionable with the top players here, but like butch he is due for a solid tournament finish. Expect a flashy tournament or another letdown from the flamboyant Venezuelan.

Darkhorses:

1 – Nir

Will the mental barrier of playing in a land where all of his country are not permitted to go, affect him? Probably not, instead it should work in his favour. Nir is one of the players on the tour with strong mental strength, this should help him withstand the crowd and work it towards his favour. A potential semi-finalist.

2 – Mashy

See butch: Should be comfortable here especially with the weather conditions. May surprise others who have seen him/her play little this year.

3 – j_dementieva27

This American is an exciting prospect to watch out for, having recorded a QF and SF in his last three tournaments. He will be keen to back up last week’s result, early picking will determine his success.
