Tennis : Patrick Mouratoglou exports to Dubai

Serena Williams’ coach, already the head of a successful tennis school in the south of France, has just opened a branch in Dubai. This will allow her to develop the sport in a region where it is already receiving growing attention.

After two centers around Paris, and one in the south of France, renowned French tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who coaches the immense Serena Williams, has just opened a new training center in Dubai.

More than just a training center, the “Mouratoglou Tennis Center Jumeirah” is the future of the training of great champions. In fact, Dubai offers climatic conditions that are mild enough to allow the pupils to train outdoors all year round. In addition, its geographical position guarantees that it is only a handful of flying hours away from all the major tournaments on the circuit. In fact, the city is already a popular meeting point for the various professionals between tournaments, which the center plans to capitalize on. Several stars are already announced there, such as the French ex-world number 10 Kristina Mladenovic.

Global ambitions

This opening would be a first for the building that Patrick Mouratoglou is trying to build. In a press release issued on the occasion of the opening of the center, he stated: “We are more than ready to take the next step in sharing our passion and expertise beyond our borders. This “Mouratoglou Tennis Center Jumeirah” is the first of many more to come”.
