Next Stop.......Dubai

Well as David is out injured for the next couple of weeks, I thought we should start looking forward to the tournament where he hopes to make his return - in Dubai. It has an excellent field including Roger Federer, Tim Henman and Mark Phillippoussis, and I found an article today that talks a little about David and Guille Coria coming to play in the tournament.

Dubai set to welcome Argentines
By A Correspondent

16 February 2004

DUBAI - The Dubai Duty Free Men's Open is set to welcome two of the most glittering stars to have emerged out of South America for a decade.

World No 4 Guillermo Coria and World No 8 David Nalbandian are both from Argentina and have taken the tennis world by storm over the past two years by surging into the world top 10. The 22 year-olds both qualified for the season ending Masters Cup and between them earned almost $4 million from a fruitful season.

"South America is emerging as a real hot bed for up and coming
players and we are delighted that Dubai will be welcoming the two
leading players from the continent," said Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free.

Coria has become a sporting icon in his native country and enjoyed a superb 2003 by picking up five titles and reaching the finals in two further tournaments. The clay-court specialist will be making his first appearance on the hard courts of Dubai, where he is likely to start as No 2 seed behind the world's top player Roger Federer.

Nalbandian burst onto the scene in 2002 when he reached the Wimbledon final, eventually losing to Lleyton Hewitt, but it was a season that proved his versatility when he reached the finals on three different surfaces.

Despite battling injury throughout 2003, the Argentinean managed to break into the world top 10 along with Coria and finished the season just four places below his countryman in eighth.

The Dubai Duty Free Men's Open, from March 1-7, will follow the Dubai Duty Free Women's Open, which kicks off the Championships fortnight from February 23-28.

Oh no, injured again? Poor David is really prone to injuries, isn't he? Hopefully it'll be a fast recovery for him.

Good Luck in Dubai!
