The new season is going to commence in a bit more than 2 weeks, but we have already the luxury to witness a couple of interesting events in the Middle East. Besides the usual Mubadala World Tennis Championship, we also have the brand new Diriyah Tennis Cup with a mouth-watering $3 million prize money.

In the first match, Gael Monfils was opposed to his dear friend Stan Wawrinka and it was the Frenchman to win in straight sets 6-3 6-3. Gael was not only effective but also in his great “exhibition mood” to gift the local fans with his magic shots.
