Duty Free Tennis Championships, Dubai

Dubai

The inaugural women's tournament held in 2001, 16 years ago. In 2009, Israeli player Shahar Peer was denied an entry visa by the United Arab Emirates, a country that does not have diplomatic relations with Israel. A number of top-seeded players, among them Venus Williams, condemned the action to not grant Peer a visa. In response, the Dubai Tennis Championship was fined a record US$300,000, Peer was awarded a guarantee to enter the next edition of the event, plus US$44,250, an amount equal to the average prize money she earned per tournament in 2008.
