The tennis stars took some time out of their practice schedule ahead of their first matches on Centre Court to select gifts they would choose for their friends and family.
Assisted by Dubai Duty Free staff, among Caroline’s selections were a Rolex watch for her father, and a Michael Kors bag for her mother. Shuai chose Camel milk chocolate for her friend and fellow player Samantha Stosur picked up a Gucci bag for herself.
Dane Wozniacki is in her sixth year as a valued Dubai Duty Free Player Ambassador while Zhang Shuai is new to the role, representing Dubai Duty Free’s focus on China and leveraging WTA’s extensive exposure and reach in the region.

The Pole No6 has arrived in Dubai off the back of a second-round exit at the Australian Open and last 16 loss at the Qatar Open.
As such, Radwanska is more than happy to return to the Aviation Club this week – the venue where she won the title back in 2012.
“It’s always great to come back to a place where you’ve held the trophy before, but it doesn’t get easier, there’s always a strong draw here. You have to start from the beginning but I hope I can hold the trophy once again,” the 27-year-old told Sport360.
How far do you think Radwanska can go this week?
Let us know!
Top seed Angelique Kerber wants to put a shaky start to 2017 behind her and get that winning feeling again at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
The German, who won two Grand Slam titles last year, has struggled to find her best form this term – exiting the Australian Open in the fourth round as defending champion last month.
However, interestingly, Kerber (7,115 ranking points) can reclaim the No1 ranking spot from Melbourne champion Serena Williams (7,780) if she goes all the way and lifts the trophy for the very first time at the Aviation Club this week.
“I will try and find ways to win a lot of matches again,” the 29-year-old, who has only won one of her last five draw matches in the Emirate, told Sport360 ahead of her first match on Monday.
