Review[edit]

The event was won by Roger Federer in men's singles, Justine Henin in women's singles, Fabrice Santoro and Nenad Zimonjić in men's doubles, and Cara Black and Liezel Huber in women's doubles.

For both Federer and Henin, it was their fourth triumph in Dubai and both hold the record for most wins here. Defending champion Rafael Nadal lost in the quarterfinals to Mikhail Youzhny, with Youzhny also defeating Nadal in the 2006 US Open quarterfinals.
