Wawrinka Ready To Soar In Dubai

Swiss enjoys zipline fun before tournament begins

World No. 4 Stan Wawrinka enjoyed the ride of his life on Sunday as he visited the popular Dubai XLine ahead of his first-round match at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Wawrinka leaped 90 metres off the W1 Tower in Downtown Dubai and flew 558 metres over the Dubai Fountains, taking in the views of the iconic Burj Khalifa and Downtown area.

The 30-year-old Wawrinka is back at this ATP World Tour 500 hard-court tournament for the first time since 2008. The Swiss is chasing his second title of the year, after lifting the trophy in Chennai in the first week of the season.

Seeded second behind World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, Wawrinka will open his Dubai title bid against Sergiy Stakhovsky on Tuesday.
