PHOTO OP: Nole hits the (simulated) open air, Andy hits the high seas in Dubai

With Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and defending champ Andy Roddick all choosing to skip Dubai for various reasons, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will have to provide most, if not all, of the star power for the embattled tourney.

Nole, who comes in as the top seed after losing in Marseille to current nemesis Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last week, attended a photo call on a A380 aircraft flight simulator provided by Emirates Airline. The Serb is scheduled to meet Italian Flavic Cipolla in the first round and could meet Marin Cilic (quarterfinals) and Gilles Simon (semifinals) along the way.

Andy also attended a photo call to promote the tourney, opting for a ride on an 85-foot luxury yacht in front of the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel. The British second seed will meet Ukranian Sergiy Stakhovsky in the opening round and could face dangerous wildcard Marat Safin (quaterfinals) and David Ferrer (semifinals) on his path to the final.

Good luck boys!
