Cabrera-Bello ready for Dubai
Last updated: 28th January 2013
Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello is excited by the opportunity to defend his Dubai Dessert Classic title this weekend.
"I'm very excited but I have no idea what to expect as it'll be the first time I've defended a tournament," said Cabrera-Bello.
Cabrera-Bello has good reason to feel confident about his prospects ahead of the last tournament on the so-called Desert Swing of the European Tour, as he has displayed a rich vain of form in 2013.
He produced useful performances at the Abu Dhabi Championship and Qatar Open tournaments earlier this month.
"Going back there, being on the same course that gave me my biggest win and a very big opportunity, it's going to be a special moment," said the Spaniard.
"I really enjoy the 'Desert Swing' and feel very comfortable out here, wearing short sleeves all week in the sunshine and being surrounded by palm trees like I am at home in the Canary Islands," added the Spaniard.
