Novak Djokovic и Carlos Alcaraz they are currently on vacation, and the battle for trophies and first place will continue in Australia. If we talk about official matches - considering that the Serbian and Spanish ace will also meet before the New Year, in Saudi Arabia.

Novak and Carlos will be part of the exhibition spectacle in Riyadh, which is on the program of the stadium with a capacity of 40.000 seats. This event is scheduled for December 26 and 27, and besides them, Arina Sabalenka and Ons Jaber will perform.

When it comes to such events, it is clear that it is primarily about finances, and many wonder how much the participants will earn. Many years ago, Roger Federer's fee for such an appearance was more than a million dollars, so it is difficult to imagine that Novak and Carlos will receive less than that.

Saudi Arabia is investing more and more in tennis, it is hosting the final tournament of "The Next Generation", and soon it is expected to receive the organization of the final WTA competition.

Many in the tennis world, such as Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, criticize such events, but the fact is that the sport has moved in this direction. Football, Formula 1, golf and boxing have already largely accepted the influx of money from these parts, but what needs to be worked on is trying to avoid losing the "soul" of the sport.

Otherwise, Djokovic will start the new season in the United Cup (December 29 - January 7), while Alcaraz will not play any tournament before the Australian Open, maybe only the "Kuyong Classic" exhibition.
