Roger Federer eyes seventh Dubai title

DUBAI, 7th February, 2015 (WAM)–Swiss renowned tennis player, Roger Federer, will be eyeing seventh crown at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship later this month.

“Roger Federer is a champion in every sense, both on and off the court, and we are thrilled that he will once again be taking part in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships,” said Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman of Dubai Duty Free, the tournament owners and organisers.

“Although he has enjoyed enormous success here history has shown that victory can never be taken for granted, and it will be fascinating to see if he can once again leave here as the champion.” Tournament director Salah Tahlak added, “Federer will go down in the history books as one of the greatest ever to have played the game, and with his presence so much in demand all around the world it has been an honour to see him play in Dubai so many times in his career. At the age of 33 his hunger for the game remains as strong as ever and no-one would be surprised if he can claim the title here yet again.”
