In February every year, Dubai throws on its fluro dress and squeaky trainers to host the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship. It’s a really important event in the Dubai social calendar and attracts many of the world’s best players - Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Venus Williams and Andrea Petkov have all vied for the title.
It’s also an important event for Gulf News. It provides a unique opportunity for the paper’s magazine, tabloid!, to monopolise the social coverage of the event, acting as the go-to source for international gossip and sports.
