In recent years, off-season exhibition tournaments became popular, because of multiple reasons. One of them is the obvious, that it gives players a chance to go head-to-head before the season starts.
With these exhibitions being often held in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, which are known for paying athletes well, another reason is the fact that players can earn some extra money by participating in such exhibitions.
And another factor is fun that they have at such tournaments, and one of them is certainly the World Tennis League, which is played in a team format, and these teams, the teams were seemingly not drawn randomly.
Looking at the draw, it's impossible to think that the draw was made randomly, as it seems that the organizers wanted to ensure that players will have fun with their teammates this year.
Therefore, The Kites will see Stefanos Tsitsipas compete alongside his girlfriend Paula Badosa, who will be joined also by her best friend Aryna Sabalenka, and the trio will be joined also by Grigor Dimitrov.
