Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships tournament fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska took some time out yesterday to enjoy a trip along the new Dubai Canal. Radwanska, the world number six, and 2012 Dubai champion, toured part of the 3.2km waterway which was opened in November 2016 in a RTA luxury water taxi operated by Excellence Limos.
