Ana Ivanovic and Elena Dementieva in Doha 2008
Sony Ericsson staged a unique tennis game in a place that has never been played in before – a desert island. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Doha skyline, Ana Ivanovic and Elena Dementieva rallied on a replica tennis court, specially built for the occasion, on Palm Island in the middle of Doha Bay in the Arabian Gulf. Similar to the court in the Khalifa Stadium where the Championships are being held.
