Abu Dhabi is currently gearing up for the Mubadala World Tennis Championship
Which is set to be held at the International Tennis Center at Zayed Sports City from 27th – 29th December 2018.
With some of the best international players participating in the esteemed tournament, now in its 11th edition, this year’s Championship will also see tennis’ most famous sibling duo, Serena and Venus Williams, join the star-studded lineup.
MWTC introduced the women’s side to the tournament for the first time last year, which saw Serena Williams go up against French Open Champion Jelena Ostapenko.
Bringing female superstars to the tournament has not only played an active role in inspiring women to take up a healthier lifestyle but also cemented Abu Dhabi’s ambitions of encouraging a stronger female presence in sports.
The Williams sisters are without doubt two of the most powerful women in sport today.
Venus Williams, the elder sibling and 7-time Grand Slam champion, will be making her debut at MWTC this year.
Having won a total of 4 Olympic Gold medals, she is also one of only four women to have won five or more Wimbledon singles titles in the Open era.
Joining Venus is her sister and inspirational women’s tennis Champion, Serena Williams.
The 23-time Grand Slam Champion will be returning to MWTC this year and will go up against her sister for the very first time in Abu Dhabi.
The tennis superstar, who is considered by many as one of the world’s greatest female players will be aiming to equal the record for the most Grand Slam wins at the Australian Open in January 2019.
While their list of achievements goes on, it is no surprise that their success story has been nothing short of an inspiration to many young girls and women alike.
