Teen tennis star Raducanu heads to Abu Dhabi



Abu Dhabi

Hot on the heels of announcing the return of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship this December, with fans in attendance, Championship organisers Flash Entertainment have pulled off another masterstroke, securing US Open champion Emma Raducanu, arguably the hottest name in world sport, as the first big name for this year’s event.

Taking place at the International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi, from December 16-18, the 13th edition of the Arabian Gulf’s leading professional tennis experience will once again welcome the best tennis talents across three days of competition.

The organisers have made way for the best with the signing of Raducanu, who took the world by storm with her fairy-tale triumph at the US Open in September. The 18-year-old set a host of records at Flushing Meadows: becoming the first qualifier, male or female, to win a Grand Slam in the Open era.—Agencies
