Last year, Russian Andrey Rublev beat Andy Murray in the final in straight sets to win his first Mubadala title. Tunisia’s most successful female tennis player, Ons Jabeur, defeated Olympic Gold medalist Belinda Bencic to become the first Arab to compete in, and win, the championship. Jabeur then followed up her Abu Dhabi success by reaching this year’s Wimbledon final at SW19.
