In 12-year history of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Rafa Nadal has appeared in nearly all of them. In December, his 10th showing will be marked and the crowd from Abu Dhabi and abroad is gearing up to cheer him on in the three-day tennis extravaganza, held from 19 – 21 December.

Rafa attended the inaugural event in 2009 and has remained as one of the world’s best players since then, making stops at Zayed Sports City nearly every December since that first appearance. With a total of 19 Grand Slam titles and four MWTC trophies to his name, the lefty is eager to earn the hefty cash prize before heading off to the Australian Open to start the Majors season.

Not only are fans excited to see him back, but Rafa himself seems pleased to have been invited to return, saying, “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.”
