    Eurosport will be showing Dubai for an hour or two each day I think, but not today.

    There's also the live feed you can buy (see the ATP website for more details), but it looks a tad pricey to me.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    I think I saw it listed on the Tennis Channel later in the week.

    I wish I had the tennis channel.. :|

    One thing I don't get is why the Dubai tourney's grand prize is almost a million dollars. I thought that was only for grand slams, it's only a 32 person draw. Whats with the HUGE payoff?!

    I think that's the total prize money, rather than what's awarded to the winner. Mind you, they are giving out huge guarantees (mid six figures if what I read is true), so if Federer or Agassi (or possibly Safin) win, you the money they take home might be approaching seven figures.
