Djokovic set for Federer clash in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi has had its sporting credentials given a significant boost by the latest draw in the 2011 Mubadala World Tennis Championship.After coming through his quarter-final against Gael Monfils in three sets, world number one Novak Djokovic has set up a semi-final tie against Roger Federer.While the Swiss ace has not been as dominant in recent months as he has in the past, the match is still one of the biggest billings in world tennis and is sure to thrust Abu Dhabi further into the global sporting spotlight.This could be good news for property developers with portfolios in Abu Dhabi as the increased exposure could lead to a spike in tourism and therefore a rise in demand for short-term rents.While the Mubadala World Tennis Championship is not one of the game's major titles, with the Australian Open just around the corner both Djokovic and Federer will be looking to put on an impressive display.
