Seles visits Majlis Art Gallery

Nine-time Grand Slam winner Monica Seles took a break from her busy build-up to the Dubai Duty Free Women’s Open by visiting a local art gallery yesterday.

Seles visited the Majlis Art Gallery in Dubai and was given a guided tour to view both local and international work that is currently on display.

The 29 year-old American said; “I am very impressed by the art here, I like art and this is a wonderful authentic gallery showcasing a variety of both local and international art.”

Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of tournament owner and organiser Dubai Duty Free, said: “The players really enjoy their time in Dubai and we try to ensure they get to see as much of the city as possible. It is through visits like this that players have the opportunity to escape the constant pressures of playing on the WTA Tour.”
