Another tennis heavyweight is coming to Abu Dhabi this December.
Newly-crowned ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas has been confirmed to compete at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship 2019.
The annual tennis event will take place from 19th to 21st December at the International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City.
The Greek ace, who defeated Dominic Thiem in London last 17th November 2019, will be making his debut in the Abu Dhabi tournament.
This means that four of the world’s top six male tennis players in the world will be seeing action in the capital.
Stefanos (World No. 6) will join Rafael Nadal (World No. 1), Novak Djokovic (World No. 2) and Daniil Medvedev (World No. 5) in the line-up.
Also slated to grace the competition are multiple Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova and young tennis sensation Amanda Anisimova.
“I’ve heard amazing things about the Mubadala World Tennis Championship and Abu Dhabi. The weather and the facilities make for the perfect destination to start the 2020 season and the organisers are putting together a really strong line-up,” said Stefanos.
