Thursday cover: Federer, Djokovic and tennis stars descend on Dubai for IPTL

The National’s Sport cover for the Thursday, December 11 issue, featuring Gary Meenaghan’s preview for the International Premier Tennis League finale in Dubai.

Asking the question, “Will the IPTL sink or swim?” Meenaghan looks at the setup for the Dubai leg and writes while the league “has been called ‘a gimmick’, and it has been called ‘game-changing’ ... starting on Thursday, UAE residents will get to make up their ownminds”.

“The competitiveness of the league,” he notes, “is what will determine whether the IPTL is a long-term success”.
