Re: Dubai 2005

But it is former World No 1 Agassi, with four Australian Opens, two US Opens, one French Open title and one Wimbledon men's singles' crown to his name who will be one of the biggest stars to set foot on the Dubai tennis stage.

There are no bigger box office attractions than the flamboyant 34-year-old Vegas showman and his appearance in Dubai for the first time is a massive vote of confidence for the tournament.

"The name of Andre Agassi is up there with the likes of Perry, Laver, Borg, McEnroe and Sampras - he is a tennis living legend," said a delighted Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free, owners and organisers of the Dubai Tennis Championships.

"Not only is he one of the most popular players in tennis, he is also one of the greatest names in sport and still competing at the highest level. Having Andre play in Dubai for the first time truly underlines how the city has grown to become a sporting centre on par with anywhere in the world."

Re: Dubai 2005

Agassi faces Stepanek in opener
By Edwin Ashie-Nikoi

20 February 2005



DUBAI — Exciting matches are on the cards in the first round pairings of the Dubai Duty Free-sponsored Dubai Open Tennis Championship which kicks off at the Dubai Tennis Centre tomorrow.


The 13th edition of the championship has attracted some of the biggest names in the sport including world’s top seed and defending champion Roger Federer of Switzerland, Australian Open champion, Marat Safin of Russia. But the biggest draw is Andre Agassi, four-time Australian Open, two-time US Open, one French and a Wimbledon champion.

According to the draw held at the Dubai Tennis Centre yesterday, Agassi, seeded fourth, faces 12th seeded Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic in their first round encounter. Two first round matches that tennis fans will be eagerly looking forward to are Safin and Nicolas Kiefer, winner of the 2000 edition, and Greg Rusedski against wild card entrant and third seed, Tim Henman in all-British encounter.

With Roger Federer and Agassi in the top half of the draw, there is a potential semifinal encounter between the two if they sail through to that stage. The same fate awaits Tim Henman and Marat Safin in the lower draw. Colm McLoughlin, managing director of Dubai Duty Free, owners of the championship speaking to the media during the draw said: “The men’s Open this year includes almost half of the world’s top 50 players. Once again we are delighted with the line up which includes some of the biggest names in world tennis.”

McLoughlin took the opportunity to welcome players, officials and members of the local, regional and international media on behalf of tournament patron General Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence.

The Dubai Tennis Championships, he said, has become a showpiece event for the Middle East. “With the world’s best players signed up we are all in for a spectacular two weeks of tennis,” McLoughlin said.

“We are proud of what the tournament has become and the appearance of some of the biggest names in world tennis further confirms the popularity of the championships among the players.”

And it is Agassi, with four Australian Opens, two US Opens, one French Open title and one Wimbledon men’s singles’ crown to his name who will be one of the biggest stars to set foot on the Dubai tennis stage. “There are no bigger box office attractions than the flamboyant 34-year-old Las Vegas showman and his appearance in Dubai for the first time is a massive vote of confidence for the tournament” he said.

McLoughlin disclosed that the DDF had been trying for a long time to bring Agassi to Dubai but could not make it because of other commitments. “He has agreed to come this year as he wants to play here before he retires.”

The presence of Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski, according to the managing director, is great for the tournament. “They have been fighting each other for many years to be top English players. I think it is a good fun for them to play in Dubai,” McLoughlin added.

Salah Tahlak, director of the tournament, was also delighted with the lineup for the championship this year. He also said it was a good effort to bring Agassi to the championship. Giving wild card to UAE top ranked player, Omar Behroozian, according to Salah, is a way to support tennis in the UAE. The announcement that Federer will return to defend his Dubai Tennis Championships crown also adds to the anticipation of the Men’s Open. Federer is chasing his third consecutive Dubai title and will make tournament history if he wins this year’s event.

The Swiss sensation is among the hottest properties on the tennis circuit and with 11 titles last season including three Grand Slams, the Tennis Masters Cup and three ATP Masters Series events, it is no wonder Federer is being mentioned among the game’s greats.

And Federer will be ready for a potential re-match against the big hitting Safin, whom he met in the first round of the Dubai tournament last year.

Re: Dubai 2005

Agassi promises Dubai a fulfilling week of tennis

By Alaric Gomes, Staff Reporter

Dubai: Andre Agassi has promised tennis lovers of the UAE a fulfilling week here at the Dubai Duty Free Men's Open this week.

Andre Agassi hits during his afternoon practice at the Dubai Tennis stadium yesterday.
"There are a lot of stars and the fans here definitely need a great week of tennis," Agassi promised after practising on centre court yesterday afternoon. "I will try and play my best here," he added.

Arguably the most charismatic player of his generation, the American, 34, is a definite hot favourite wherever he goes. And Dubai is no different.

He arrived at Dubai International Airport late on Friday and headed straight to the centre court of the Dubai Tennis Stadium for a practice session with his coach Darren Cahill.

Yesterday, he was on centre court again hitting against Germany's Rainer Schuettler in the afternoon heat. Agassi returned at 5 pm to continue his practice session with Schuettler.

"I am feeling very good physically and mentally. The travelling has not affected me and I still feel I have the focus to go on," Agassi said.

The American has so far played in two tournaments this year, reaching the quarterfinals on both occasions.

He lost to Roger Federer in the last eight stage at the season opening Australian Open and bowed out at the same stage in the San Jose Open against Austrian Jurgen Melzer.

"This looks like a good arena for tennis. With the field, it looks like we are headed to a great week of tennis," Agassi noted.

Such under-par performances by his own high standards have seen Agassi slip into the 11th spot on the Indesit ATP Race position.

"I want to take one day at a time here," Agassi said.

"If I stick to this plan, I think I will be in a good position to advance in this competition," he added.

The American had a word of praise for all his fans, especially those who have rooted for him during his fantastic career.

"Thank you for all your support over the years," Agassi said.

Known to have Iranian roots, Agassi hoped he can stay here for a longer time. "I can do so only if I continue to win. I hope I can come here many times before the end of my career," he said.
