The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Centre is definitely something that can't be missed! With top-level international players flying into the emirate, tickets are selling out fast. As the championship celebrates its 21st year, here's a list of what we think you should look out for during this exciting tournament that takes place between the 15th and 28th February: 

1) Tennis superstar Roger Federer looks at potentially winning his seventh title at the tournament. Will he make it? Look out for the men's tournament from the 22nd of February till the 28th. We're all riling up and hoping for a finale with him and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. Tennis stars Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych also are playing in the tournament this year.

2) Venus Williams returns and looks forward to winning the title again as she did in the previous year. Her sister Serena currently spends her 228th non-consecutive week as the world’s top-ranked player.

3) In the WTA event, which takes place between the 15th and 21st of February,  top 10 ranked players Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic have emerged as crowd favorites this year.

Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova looks forward to reaching the finals this year. 

4) For fans attending, the sponsors have organized a Ladies Day, Fantastic Fan Day as well a competition where you can win a brand new 2015 Audi A3 on guessing the right number of tennis balls. In addition, you also get a chance to win a 2015 Audi A8L and Q7.
