The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is to feature a stunning nine of the world’s top 10 women after Canadian superstar Eugenie Bouchard was friday awarded a wild card into the event.
The greatest of several young rising stars that will feature during what is guaranteed to be one of the most exciting weeks of tennis ever to be staged in Dubai, the 20-year old has risen to as high as five in the world and she still sits firmly inside the top 10 after last month reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.
“We are thrilled that Eugenie Bouchard has accepted a wild card into the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. (…)
She has risen very swiftly to the top of the game and draws huge crowds wherever she competes, even generating her own Genie’s Army of enthusiastic supporters.
Her participation here will make competition for the title stronger than ever and it is impossible to predict who will emerge at the end of the week as the winner.”
Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman of Dubai Duty Free
A second wild card has been awarded to Flavia Pennetta. The popular Italian has claimed an impressive 10 singles titles and reached a further 14 finals, which includes lifting the Indian Wells title and reaching the final of the Tournament of Champions in Sofia in 2014.
