Former world No. 64 Dustin Brown has signed up to play the Tie Break Tens event in Dubai. Brown, now ranked at No. 337 in the world, is well-known for his casual game-style and that has made him one of the most attractive players to watch on the Tour.
The Tie Break Tens event features an extremely short format and Brown could thrive in it with his game-style. Brown joins Gael Monfils, Taylor Fritz and Dan Evans in the Tie-Break Tens player field. “This is such a great addition to the Dubai sporting calendar and we’re really excited to see some of the world’s best players come to showcase this exciting game.
Tennis fans will enjoy the game as they’ve not seen it before here and I’m confident the sport will attract some new fans as they enjoy this fast-paced evening of sporting fun," Tie Breaks Tens tournament director Jimmy Poon said after Monfils was announced for the tournament.
Brown, Monfils certainly won't disappoint
Brown and Monfils have always been all about entertaining fans and they will certainly give their best to make it a fun experience for the Dubai crowd. Last week, Monfils ended runner-up to Jannik Sinner in the Sofia final.
"Not the result I wanted today, but still feeling blessed about playing in another final. I will continue to push for more success next weeks coming up," Monfils said in an Instagram post. After the final, SInner spoke extremely highly of former world No.
6 Monfils. "What Monfils has done in his career is amazing. He has played a lot of big matches and still moves very well on the court. He's extremely talented and he's a great guy. We have a good relationship, sometimes we joke together in the locker room," Sinner said of Monfils.
The Tie Break Tens -- which was launched in 2015 -- didn't take place last year but it set to return this year on October 22.
