Andy in Dubai

Quote

An ATP 500, the event is held at the Aviation Club Tennis Centre in Dubai from 26th Feb - 2nd March.

The strong player field is headed by defending champion Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev.

Andy didn't play here last year so has no ranking points to defend.

The draw takes place on Saturday at 1:00 pm local, 9:00 am GMT.  Dubai is GMT+4.

He's playing Denis Shapovalov and if he wins would play Ugo Humbert provided he beats Gael Monfils.  Personally would love to see an Andy v Gael match in the 2nd round!

IF, a big one, they have put the correct 2024 draw on the website Andy will play Denis Shapavalov in R1 in Dubai. The isreali born Canadian has an entry through a protected ranking and has not been winning many matches lately. I assume he has been injured, hence the PR, although he did win his first round in Sud de France. Perhaps someone can post the draw on here for others to see? I see that I was beaten to posting the R1 draw for Andy. It happens!

Shapovalov began feeling pain in his left knee while playing Daniil Medvedev in the final at Vienna in late October 2022.  For months he did physiotherapy and cut back his practices, hoping to limit the impact on the knee, which had a tear in the patellar tendon, plus tendinitis, but he still kept competing, albeit rather unsuccessfully, then missed the rest of the 2023 season after losing in the fourth round of Wimbledon, although he did play a few doubles matches until the end of October.  Started competing again in January.
