Hello all,

Sorry for being too late in posting this...I know, most of you will not be interested in reading this now, well.. I had the chance this year to visit Dubai Duty Free Championship 2014 :) and it was again a great experience for me ;)

But, unfortunately, Dubai Open Organizers doesn't allow me or anyone to visit the practice sessions for the players so I was really disappointed :( although in all tournaments they allow fans to visit the practice sessions for the players as it’s easier for the fans to get autographs and photos with their favorite players & that was my dream to take one picture with Roger Federer, but for my bad luck I couldn’t this time :(
For me, the best part of the tournament and my visit to Dubai this year was meeting my friend Vibhu Batra  :) he is a great and really sweet person and I’m really happy that I had the chance to meet him in person and spend time with him in the tourney, we had a great time together :) and I hope to get another chance to meet again one day soon ;)

Also I had the chance to see all the 5 matches of Roger Federer :rolleyes:

In the 1st round he beat Benjamin Becker 6–1, 6–4.
The 2nd round win was vs Radek Štěpánek 6–2, 6–7(4–7), 6–3.

QF win was vs Lukáš Rosol 6–2, 6–2.

In SF he defeated Novak Djokovic 3–6, 6–3, 6–2 in a very great match for the Maestro.

In the Final Match he defeated Tomáš Berdych 3–6, 6–4, 6–3, in tense battle from beginning to end, with Federer having to rally from a set and break down to won his sixth title at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships :wub: :wub:

Thank you from me too Taghreed :)

Yes, it must be frustrating that fans cannot to see players at the practice sessions. I wonder why the organisers do that?

Good that you met Vibhu too. I guessed you must be sitting somewhere near him judging by your photos. Nice and close to the court too :)
