Dubai: Britain`s Andy Murray will play in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship, the organisers of the February tournament said on Thursday.

Murray will join a stellar field including world number one Novak Djokovic and 17-times grand slam champion Roger Federer.

The Scot, ranked six in the world, has had mixed fortunes in Dubai, finishing runner-up to Federer in 2012 but suffering quarter-final defeats in two of his three other visits.

Djokovic and Federer have won the Dubai title 10 times between them, including the last six titles.

The women`s event, which begins on Feb. 15, a week before the men`s, features eight of the world`s top 10, including Serena Williams, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova.
