After the WTA Finals, the ATP Finals, the Billie Jean King Cup and the Davis Cup, tennis will not stop. Or rather, he'll keep the engine revving up on the eve of season twenty-two-twenty-three with an almost endless string of performances.
Let's analyze them in order, because yes. They are a lot. Nadal started the South American tour even before the official end of the season, forgoing Davis in favor of an endless one-tour series between Argentina, Chile and Brazil with Ecuador and Mexico still to tick.
With him always Casper Ruud, except in one case with Tabilo at the starting line. The three days 8-10 December will instead be dedicated to the Diriyah Cup with Alexander Zverev, Nick Kyrgios, as well as Dominic Thiem and Stan Wawrinka.
Christmas full of tennis! December full of performances and full of stars
A little less than a month from the end of the season, therefore, some of the main protagonists of the season return to the field for a decidedly rich event.
For Zverev, however, it will be the first engagement, albeit unofficial, since the tragic injury caused by Roland Garros in the semifinal against Nadal. Ah, to the winner a million dollars. The now historic Mubadala World Tennis Championships will be played from 16 to 18 December, with world number one Carlos Alcaraz as the main protagonist.
Forced to miss the ATP Finals due to an injury, he will certainly have the company of Tsitsipas, Ruud and even Rublev. Four teams, eighteen players. This is the format of the brand new team competition that will be played with Novak Djokovic, Iga Swiatek, Nick Kyrgios, Paula Badosa and many others from 19 December to 24 December.
It will be called the World Tennis League and it looks promising. From 29 December, however, the United Cup will be held, a competition that will replace the ATP Cup. Eighteen countries are at the starting line with Rafael Nadal and Paula Badosa on a collision course in the group stage with Australia and Great Britain.
Iga Swiatek, Nick Kyrgios, Caroline Garcia and Alexander Zverev are just some of the protagonists who will be present in Australia to compete in defense of their country.
