The WTA tour’s Middle East swing will come to a conclusion with the Dubai Tennis Championships, which will be held from February 19-25, 2023. The season’s first WTA 1000 event is set to be a star-studded affair.
World No. 1 Iga Swiatek leads a loaded draw, which features almost the entirety of the top 20. World No. 3 Ons Jabeur, who’s recovering after undergoing a minor surgery, and the still suspended Simona Halep are the only absentees from the bracket.
Aryna Sabalenka returns to action following her maiden Grand Slam triumph at the Australian Open last month. She’s the only player to remain undefeated this year and will be gunning to keep the streak going. However, she’s yet to progress beyond the quarterfinals here.
Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula are competing in both singles and doubles. The duo recently claimed the Qatar Open title, their first of the season. Rising teen star Linda Fruhvirtova, veteran Vera Zvonareva and 2020 Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin are among the wildcard recipients.
Bianca Andreescu, Leylah Fernandez, Barbora Krejcikova, and Amanda Anisimova are some of the other well-known players in the mix. Defending champion Jelena Ostapenko will be hoping for a better showing here after some disappointing results in this swing.
Doubles star Sania Mirza will play the final tournament of her career here and has teamed up with Madison Keys for the same. The Indian trailblazer will be aiming to conclude her illustrious career on a high.
