Meet The Fierce Women of the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships
Yesterday marked the start of the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Women's Tennis Championships. From February 15th to 20th, a group of fierce ladies will serve up a spectacle for crowds at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium in Irish Village, followed by the men's tournament the next week. The lineup features four previous world champions: Simona Halep. Petra Kvitova, Karolina Pliskova, and Julia Goerges. Simona is returning after taking the title in 2015. The stakes are high. Last year the winner took home $456,000 (1.67 M AED), and at $465,480, this year's prize is even bigger. To learn more, click here.
We salute the women who are leaving it all out on the court and setting a tremendous example of drive and physical prowess for all aspiring athletes.
