Federer arrived in Dubai a few days ago and plays in this week’s ATP 500 event. He is seeded second in the 2012 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, where eight of the world’s top ten have entered. The field is headed by top seeded Novak Djokovic. Third seeded Andy Murray is the Serb’s potential semifinal opponent. In the bottom half of the draw, Federer could face Mardy Fish in the quarterfinals. A potential semifinal would be against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Juan Martin Del Potro, or Alexandr Dolgopolov. Federer faces Michael Llodra in the first round.
The Swiss maestro will be going for his 5th title in Dubai. He has previously won in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2007, and was a finalist in 2006 and 2011.
