An Israeli tennis player was denied an entrance visa to Dubai, despite assurances that she would be able to compete in a tennis game there.
Shachar Pe’er intended to play in the Dubais Tennis Tournaments and compete with a German player. However, she was informed Saturday night by the Arab country that she would not receive an entrance visa.
The female tennis player was the first Israeli tennis player to compete in a Qatar tennis tournament last year. The World Tennis Association is considering sanctioning Dubai for its refusal to allow the Israeli player to compete.
