Ace news for tennis fans! Novak Djokovic will return to Abu Dhabi in December to defend his title for the third year running at the 2013 Mubadala World Tennis Championship.
The annual tournament will take place from 26 to 28 December and will see six of the world’s top tennis players battle it out across three days at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex at Zayed Sports City. The full player line-up will be announced later this year, but is likely to include fellow tennis superstars Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal.
Speaking of the championship where he has never lost a match, Djokovic said “No doubt I’ll face some tough competition again in December but I’m hungry for the hat-trick and I’ll be ready to defend my crown. The crowds in Abu Dhabi always create an amazing atmosphere and I hope to give them a great few days of tennis again this year.”
