All the great players are going to round up yet again in late Feb, at the Dubai Open, in preparation for the upcoming Indian Wells, also known as the 5th Grand Slam.

The ATP Dubai Open is a professional tennis tournament managed and put-together by Dubai Duty Free and held on a yearly basis in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on outdoor hardcourts.

The Aviation Club Tennis Centre will be the arena of the event, a tennis center capable of hosting 5000 persons.

The Dubai Open has a one of a kind story and is likewise a wealthy one, with award money over the standard.

In this year's edition, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will be present at the beginning of the competition.

There's one big absence in this year's line-up: Novak Djokovic, the world's no 1 player and champ of Australian Open is not going to participate in Dubai

There's an all time record of seven title won, which is held by Roger Federer, while Novak Djokovic has won the Dubai Open four times

Oddly enough, Rafael Nadal has won the title just once and hardly ever played a final again.
