The director of Dubai's tennis tournament said on Saturday that Israeli player Andy Ram would have all the security he needs to play in the ATP Tour event starting Monday. Salah Tahlak told reporters that Dubai was a safe place and organizers will make sure Ram has the necessary security to participate in the men's tournament. Another Israeli player, Shahar Pe'er, was denied entry into the country a week ago by UAE authorities, preventing her from playing in the women's tournament. Organizers cited security concerns for that decision, which prompted protests from the Women's Tennis Association and fellow players. UAE authorities granted Ram permission to enter the country on Thursday. Ram is ranked No.7 in the world in doubles.
