Under the Patronage of H.h. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai
2018 Dubai Champion Roberto Bautista Agut saw another side of Dubai when he visited Al Seef – a bustling waterfront promenade by Meraas reflecting both the heritage and modern-day stories of the city.
The ATP player had the opportunity to rediscover the heart of the city, a place where local fishermen, pearl-divers, weavers and tradesmen once came to trade.
Bautista is no stranger to Dubai: “I always love coming to Dubai, Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is one of the tournaments I like coming to and I have really good memories from two years ago. It’s always nice to visit the old city and have a new experience.”
Bautista also visited the Museum of Illusions – the attraction which takes visitors on a magical journey of distorted perspective and optical illusions – of which there are 80! He and his team had a great time testing out many of the mind-boggling exhibits.
See Bautista on Centre Court tonight where he will face Jan-Lennard Struff in his first round match.
