Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships WTA top seed Angelique Kerber got a bird's eye view of the Dubai Marina yesterday, as she was joined by friends including WTA President Micky Lawler, for Dinner in the Sky.

The world number two was thrilled to experience arguably the world's most unique dining concept, as Dinner in the Sky takes guests 50 metres up, suspended by a crane, to enjoy a meal. The Dinner in the Sky concept was introduced 10 years ago in Belgium and Germany and since then, it's popped up in more than 40 countries around the world.
