Our predictions and tips for the ATP Dubai Duty-Free Championships 2023
Novak Djokovic is the most successful player in the 32-man field in Dubai. He has won the event five times and has never lost before the quarterfinals since making his debut here in 2007. Djokovic will be the overwhelming title favorite and rightly so.
Djokovic’s closest challenger is likely to be Daniil Medvedev, who recently rejoined the world top 10 after his first title win of the season in Rotterdam. At the time of writing, Medvedev is on track to reach his second final of 2023 in Doha and could potentially line up for a three-peat in February.
The rest of the top-8 seed list, including Auger-Aliassime and Hubert Hurkacz, have picked up some momentum in recent tournaments and could have a chance or two to make a deep run in the UAE.
