This year’s Mubadala World Tennis Championship 2017 (MWTC) is once again set to host an unmissable line-up of the world’s best tennis superstars. After a hugely successful run to the semi-finals at the 2017 US Open, Spain’s Pablo Carreño Busta has confirmed that he will be making his debut at the 10th edition of the Championship which runs from 28 – 30 December 2017.
The Spaniard who has risen to world no.10, will compete against his fellow world’s bests at the Championship. These include world no.1 and four time MWTC Champion, Rafael Nadal, who defeated Busta in the quarter-finals at this year’s French Open.
Busta, who claimed his third ATP Title at the 2017 ‘Millennium Estoril Open’ in Portugal, will also compete alongside world no.7 Dominic Thiem. The two went head-to-head earlier this year in the final of the Rio Open, with Thiem coming out victorious. With Rafael Nadal recently securing his 16th Grand Slam title at the 2017 US Open against former MWTC participant Kevin Anderson, the 10th edition is an event that no fan can afford to miss.
In anticipation of his first MWTC appearance, Pablo Carreño Busta said, “I am very excited to be competing in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship against the world’s top players. This will be my first time competing in the Middle East and I’m looking forward to meeting the fans in the UAE. To take home the trophy would be an amazing feeling.”
With two more players still to be announced, the one-of-a-kind tennis championship is guaranteed to get spectators out of their seats. To celebrate the landmark 10th edition, MWTC will be giving away money-can’t-buy prizes on the 10th of every month, including a place in a star player coaching clinic, performing the coin-toss before a match and much more!
