Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic set for Saudi Arabia exhibition match
If you are a Rafael Nadal and/or Novak Djokovic fan, then pencil in December 22 in your calendar.
The two players will meet in an exhibition match at Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City with Nadal confirming the meeting on Twitter.
“Thanks for the invitation and looking forward to playing and visiting for the first time,” the Spaniard wrote.
The two have played 52 competitive games on the ATP Tour and Djokovic leads their head-to-head battle 27-25.
The Serb is also the form player as he won Wimbledon and the US Open and climbed back to No 3 in the world on the back of those results, but Nadal currently leads the rankings having won the French Open earlier this year.
