2018 Wimbledon finalist and winner of the 2017 Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Kevin Anderson, set to return to the world-class tournament in Abu Dhabi.
Now in its 11th edition, the tournament will run from 27th – 29th December 2018 with six top male players and two leading women’s players.
Anderson, who is the highest-ranked South African player in ATP rankings history (since 1973) will be joined by Serbian 14-time Grand Slam Champion and recent Shanghai Master’s winner, Novak Djokovic in the men’s side of the draw and seven-time Grand Slam winner, Venus Williams on the women’s side – with more players to be announced shortly.
The six-foot-eight, big-serving, right-hander will be making his third appearance in the Capital. After winning his fourth ATP title at New York and reaching his second Grand Slam final at Wimbledon this year, where he also earned his 300th career win, the world’s number eight is set to defend his MWTC crown.
Anderson who was in blistering form last year, defeated Spain’s Pablo Carreño Busta, Austrian Dominic Thiem in the opening matches and went on to conquer another Spaniard, Roberto Bautista Agut, in the Championship match in two highly entertaining sets. The South African established himself firmly as a fan favourite by sharing advice and tips, training with fans and immersing himself in the community spirit that lies at the heart of MWTC.
