DUBAI – Confirmation of Rafael Nadal’s return to the UAE capital from December 19 to 21 will mark the Spanish ace’s 10th Mubadala World Tennis Championship appearance.
Since making his debut in the inaugural event in 2009, Nadal has become one of the best tennis players of all-time, winning 13 of his 19 Grand Slam titles in the process. He has claimed the Mubadala World Tennis Championship title four times, his most recent title coming in 2016 with victory over David Goffin.
The left-handed superstar will be looking to land a record fifth title in December – he is currently tied on four victories with Novak Djokovic.
As he prepares to mark 10 years of competing at Abu Dhabi’s International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City, Rafa is making it an extra special occasion for spectators.
“I’ve been here plenty of times, it’s a great event with fantastic organisation. It is a very nice place with friendly people and the atmosphere on court is fantastic,” Nadal said.
“The King of Clay” has an incredible offer for those keen to catch him in action: Anyone who buys a ticket for the three-day tennis championship on ticketmaster.ae until October 19 stands a chance to win one of 10 pieces of Mubadala World Tennis Championship memorabilia signed by the man himself! A lucky winner will be chosen daily.
In addition to three days of top-class tennis action, spectators will be treated to a host of off-court activities, player interaction in the form of tennis clinics, autograph sessions, Q&A sessions, and interactive competitions.
Tickets start from just Dh100 for adults. On December 19, children aged 12 or younger can watch the games for free. Three-day packages are also available at a 20 percent discount. ICA/Expat Media
