Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev could be set to renew their rivalry in Abu Dhabi later this year after both players were confirmed for the Mubadala World Tennis Championship 2019.
World No 2 Nadal has been a regular at MWTC since its launch in January 2009. The Spaniard, 33, is the exhibition tournament's joint-most successful player, having won the title four times.
Nadal will head to the International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City for the December 19-21 event following another hugely successful season which comprised a record-extending 12th French Open title and fourth US Open title.
“I’m really looking forward to be returning to the Mubadala World Tennis Championship. It’s a great event and offers the best preparation for a fast start to the new season," Nadal said.
"Every time I come to Abu Dhabi I feel at home and I’m always treated so well. The spectators are knowledgeable and know how to have fun and I have very good memories playing here."
Traditionally held over three days between Christmas and New Year, the 2019 event has been moved to an earlier date of December 19-21.
Spectators can expect yet another exciting Championship this December. Aside from the best live tennis action on court, ticket holders can make the most of excellent food and beverage offerings in the interactive Tennis Village, tennis clinics, Q&A sessions with the players and competitions. Demonstrating the Championship’s appeal as a fun family day out, day one is also Kids’ Day, with children 12 and under going free.
