The 10th edition of the Abu Dhabi demonstration tennis tournament according sport news has begun, and Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem are in the semifinals. As it is well known, the event scheme could have been much more sterile if they had not refused to take part at the last minute Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, and Milos Randjic.
In the first day matches, US Open finalist Kevin Anderson defeated 6:3, 7:6 (2) Pablo Carreno-Busta, winning the right to stand against Team in the semifinals. In the other match, Roberto Bautista-Agut won 7:5, 6:2 over Andrei Rublev, expecting Djokovic in the next round. This will be the first match, albeit unofficial, for a Serb from Wimbledon.
