World's Top Tennis Stars Practice at Burj Al Arab, Dubai

No es photoshop... La cancha de tenis más alta del mundo:

In preparation for the Dubai Duty Free Men’s Open, tennis legend, Andre Agassi and the world No. 1, Roger Federer, couldn’t resist the temptation to have a friendly knock about on the world’s highest tennis court, the helipad of Burj Al Arab, the world’s most luxurious hotel.

Both players are in Dubai to compete in the US$1 million Dubai Duty Free Men’s Open, which is the first round of the two-week Dubai Tennis Championships.

World's Top Tennis Stars Practice at Burj Al Arab, Dubai

The Burj Al Arab, the only seven-star hotel in the world, was erected on a purposebuilt island in the Arabian Gulf five years ago.

The world's tallest, it has 202 two-storey suites, an underwater seafood restaurant, gold mosaic floors and a fleet of white Rolls-Royces to ferry its guests around.

Overnight stays start at £750 for a 'panoramic' one bedroom suite with floor-toceiling windows overlooking the Gulf.
