Some of the greatest names in tennis have arrived in Abu Dhabi for the start of the global tennis season for the opening day of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship at the International Tennis Complex, Zayed Sports City.
Having practiced on centre court ahead of his first match in Abu Dhabi, Tomas Berdych said:
"If you look at the group of players in the tournament, names such as Rafa and Roger, it's the perfect start to the tennis year rivaling the end of season finale in London at the ATP Finals."
"I'm playing some of my best tennis and really enjoying the weather here. I can't wait to play my first match. It will be tough but that's what all the players need right now."
