PYW Doubles Dubai





Welcome to Dubai, United Arab Emirates! For the second week in a row, many of the WTA stars will be treated like royalty with lucrative Middle Eastern hospitality. This event is one of the most popular events on tour each year and while 2013 notably will miss Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, currently the dominant doubles force on the WTA tour, many other exciting teams are in action. The top seeds will instead be Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. The second seeds are the new team of veterans in Russian Nadia Petrova and Slovene Katarina Srebotnik, who are beginning to click as a tandem. Other interesting teams include the reunited former number one wildcard team of American Lisa Raymond and Aussie Samantha Stosur, former number one South African Cara Black partnering Aussie Anastasia Rodionova, and former number one American Liezel Huber uniting with Taiwanese Su-Wei Hsieh. With such a deep draw, this tournament will feature a bounty of thrilling matches this year. Vote now as the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships begins!
