Tennis action shifts to the UAE for the 30th edition of the Dubai Tennis Championships, which will take place from 21-26 February.

Novak Djokovic is the top seed at the ATP 500 event. The Serbian will be playing in his first tournament of the year following the visa fiasco in Melbourne that left him unable to compete in the Australian Open.

Djokovic's reign at the top of the rankings is also under threat this week. World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, who's competing at the Mexican Open, will ascend to the top spot if he wins the tournament. However, if the Russian fails to lift the trophy, the 20-time Major champion could retain his hold on the No. 1 ranking if he performs better than Medvedev.

World No. 7 Andrey Rublev is seeded second in Dubai. After a third-round exit from the Australian Open, he has performed well by reaching back-to-back semifinals in Rotterdam and Marseille. The Russian will play his semi-final match in Marseille against Benjamin Bonzi on Saturday.

Felix Auger-Aliassime is the third seed. He's made a fantastic start to the season, winning the ATP Cup, reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and winning his maiden career title in Rotterdam. He's currently a semifinalist in Marseille and is the favorite to go all the way.

Fourth seed Jannik Sinner was forced to pull out of the Rotterdam Open after testing positive for COVID-19. The Italian had a successful outing Down Under, winning all three of his ATP Cup group ties and reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.

Other notable players in the draw are Denis Shapovalov, Hubert Hurkacz, defending champion Aslan Karatsev and Roberto Bautista Agut. Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray is also in the fray.
