WTA Tour Upholds $300,000 Fine for Dubai Organisers

The WTA Tour Board have decided to reject the appeal made by the Dubai organisers on the record $300,000 fine and other penalties. This all stems from Shahar Peer being rejected for a visa by the United Arab Emirates.

In order for the tournament to take place by 2010, the organisers must comply with the penalties imposed by the board.

Aside from the $300,000 fine, the organisers must come up with a $2 million financial guarantee by July this year plus ensuring that qualified players from Israel will get their UAE visas at least eight weeks in advance.
