Greece’s tennis champion Stefanos Tsitsipas came second in this year’s Mubadala World Tennis Championship, after losing to Spain’s Rafael Nadal 2-1 after three sets.

The two tennis champions met in Abu Dabi, in the United Arab Emirates, playing for three hours and twelve minutes.

In a nerve-breaking night, the Greek player fought to the last minute but did not manage to overcome the world’s number one in ATP rankings.

Tsitsipas secured his place in Saturday’s final on Friday evening, after beating Serbia’s Novak Djokovic.
