Rafa Reigns, Roger Ready: Mubadala
The Mubadala World Tennis Championship will bring united six of the world's most esteemed players to entertain tennis fans and bring out some quality tennis. Competing for sheer pride and $250,000 is reigning champion Rafael Nadal, world number 2's Roger Federer, and Berdych, Tsonga, Soderling and Baghdatis. Naturally, Rafa and Roger have been given a bye on Thursday and will start their matches this Friday. Rafa and Roger will be busy focusing on the imminent Australian Open grand slam, and may not perform to the best of their abilities though. On the other hand, Soderling is a high threat as he was runner-up last year and will be seeking the top spot this year. Tsonga's fitness to play is questionnable, having had to sit out of the Davis Cup last week because of injuries. Best of luck Rafa and Roger.
