Defending champion Rafael Nadal will meet David Goffin in the final of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition event in Abu Dhabi.
Our champ defeated Canadian Milos Raonic 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
After the match, Rafa said:
It’s great to be back on court after a time without matches.
To beat two great players (Tomas Berdych on Thursday and Raonic on Friday) is great news for me.
David is very talented. It will be a tough match but I will do my best. (via AFP)
Earlier, Goffin upset world No 1 Andy Murray with a 7-6(4), 6-4 victory. In the match for fifth-place in the six-man field, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat Thomas Berdych 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 10-3.
Should Rafa take the crown tomorrow it would be his fouth victory in Abu Dhabi.
