The history of the Championship
The Championship is primarily a men's singles professional tennis tournament – though women were eventually invited to attend, with the most common structure including six male players and two female players. The all-singles matches are played on hard outdoor courts. Since it was inaugurated in 2009, the event has taken place annually at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Originally called the Capitala World Tennis Championship due to sponsorship by the Capitala Group, the first ever participants included Andy Roddick, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The winner of the first edition of the tournament was Brit Andy Murray (Nadal was the Number One tennis player in the world at that point, and he beat him!). Only six male players took part in the tournament for many years, before women were finally invited to partake as well. Jelena Ostapenko and Serena Williams went head-to-head in the first women's match at the Championship in 2017. No matter who your favourites are, tennis fans can get up close and personal with the world’s biggest and brightest professional tennis stars – including Hyeon Chung and Novak Djokovic – with exclusive question & answer sessions, autograph signings, player/coach clinics and more!
