Rafael Nadal will be making his 10th appearance at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship (MWTC) in December and to celebrate the milestone, tennis fans in the UAE are in with a chance to win signed merchandise from the man himself.

Ticket purchases for MWTC made in the next 10 days - October 10-19 - will automatically be entered into a draw to win one of 10 pieces of MWTC memorabilia signed by Nadal, with winners chosen daily.

Since making his debut at the inaugural tournament in 2009, Nadal has become the joint-most successful player in MWTC's history having won four titles. This year, he will attempt to break clear of Novak Djokovic, who is also on four titles.

“I’ve been here plenty of times, it’s a great event with fantastic organisation,": Nadal said in a statement. "It is a very nice place with friendly people and the atmosphere on court is fantastic.”

Potentially standing in Nadal's way of a record fifth title will be Daniil Medvedev after the world No 4 confirmed that he will be making his MWTC debut.

Nadal and Medvedev most recently met in a US Open final epic, which saw Nadal win in five sets having led 2-0. The remaining four players of the six-player event will be announced in due course.

However, the line-up for the third edition of the one-off women's match has been announced, with Russian superstar Maria Sharapova set to face American teen sensation Amanda Animisova.

The 12th edition of MWTC will be played at an earlier time slot compared to past years. Traditionally held between Christmas and New Year, this year's event will take place December 19-21.

Tickets start from just Dh100 for Adults and on Day 1 children under-12 go free. Three-day packages are also available at a 20 per cent discount.

For your chance to win merchandise signed by 19-time grand slam champion Nadal all you need to do is purchase your tickets from www.ticketmaster.ae any time until October 19.
