Andy Does Dubai

I am terribly sorry not updating my blog for so long but I just got these photos in. I asked Stephane Carter to use them on his but he didn’t want to so I am using these photos for the Weeklylinks instead.  The photos are from Andy Murray who is currently in Dubai to compete.  With many top players such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Roddick out of the tournament the chances of winning for Andy have increased big time.  He might even take home the title. Enjoy the photos!

Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships’ No.2 seed and ATP World Tour No.4, Andy Murray, made his maiden voyage aboard a luxury yacht off the coastline of Dubai today in advance of the tournament’s 1st round which begins tomorrow, Monday 23rd February.

It was the first time the Scot had stepped aboard a luxury yacht, and he did so in front of the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel.

The 21-year-old boarded the 85-foot yacht at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina. The outing headed towards the Palm Jumeirah before passing the Al Qasr hotel, The Madinat Jumeirah resort and Wild Wadi Water Park before returning to Burj al Arab.

“This is the first time I’ve ever been on a boat like this before,” said Murray. “It was great fun and probably the best player activity I’ve done whilst I’ve been on the Tour”.

Murray plays Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky in the Championships’ opening round tomorrow evening.
