The fourth player joining the Mubadala World Tennis Championship 2019 is 21-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas, MWTC organisers have announced.
He will be joining an already stellar line-up that includes the current world number one, Rafael Nadal, 16-time grand slam champion Novak Djokovic and World No.4 Daniil Medvedev from Russia. The final two male players are yet to be announced.
The rising star in the men’s game, Tsitsipa’s style of playing is classified as ‘aggressive’, and is guaranteed to excite crowds when he makes his debut at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship next month.
The Greek ace rounded off a stellar 2019 season with a victory over Dominic Thiem Austrian in the ATP Finals 2019.
Gearing up for his first appearance in Abu Dhabi, the Greek player has said that he’s “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.”
The eight player line-up will also include Maria Sharapova and Ajla Tomljanovic, who will undoubtedly steal the spotlight on day one of the championship in the women’s exhibition match, which takes place on Thursday December 19, 2019.
During the three day event, tennis super-fans will have the opportunity to get up close to their sporting heroes, with meet-and-greets, autograph signing and access to training.
Standard adult tickets are available online at ticketmaster or Virgin Megastores across the UAE, priced from Dhs100 on day 1, Dhs250 on day 2 and Dhs350 on day 3. Three-day packages are priced from Dhs520 per adult.
