2024 Dubai Championships ATP Entry List - Medvedev, Rublev, Hurkacz & more

by Nurein Ahmed

The Dubai Championships is one of the most prestigious tournaments on the ATP calendar and will return for its 32nd edition, running from February 26th to March 2nd.

As part of the ATP 500 series, the Dubai Championships is held at Aviation Club Tennis Centre, with the main court's capacity standing at 5,000 spectators. The tournament has worked hard to bring a talented pool of players for the 2024 edition.

Two of the last tournament winners will lead the 32-player field. These are the Russian duo of Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev. Medvedev lost his third Australian Open final in four years at the end of January but is keen to bounce back in his first tournament after Melbourne. He has also signed up for his first grass court tournament in 2024, later in June.

Novak Djokovic was a semifinalist last year in Dubai, but he isn't featured on the initial entry list. The Serbian star has won the tournament five times in his career, but unless he takes a wild card into the field, he won't be able to get closer to Roger Federer's record of eight titles.

Instead, Poland's Hubert Hurkacz, who lost to Djokovic last year, will be aiming to preserve his spell of good results in Dubai. Hurkacz reached the semis in 2022 and is also a two-time quarterfinalist. France's Adrian Mannarino is seeded a high of fourth after breaking into the Top 20 this year.

Karen Khachanov, Ugo Humbert, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, and Jan-Lennard Struff will add much-needed firepower and flair to this tournament. Some of the most dangerous players in the draw will be unseeded.

These include Borna Coric (two-time semifinalist), Sebastian Korda, and Adelaide champion Jiri Lehecka. Former World No. 1 Andy Murray is on the cusp of a Top 50 exit but is set to play in Dubai for the eighth time. He won this event back in 2017.

The Canadian duo of Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov will use a Protected Ranking to play in the main draw. At least four players will be granted wild cards, while four players must fight for their spot through the qualifying draw. The entry list for the 2024 Dubai Championships is indicated below.
