Former US Open champion and three-time AO finalist Daniil Medvedev and Holger Rune, the only non Grand Slam champion in the group, form the field for the six-man exhibition event that will be staged in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the largest city on the Arabian Peninsula, as part of the Saudi cultural and entertainment festival Riyadh Season.

"After some other tennis players have done so, I am very excited to play for the first time in Riyadh," Nadal said in a statement announcing the exhibition.

The announcement of the men's exhibition comes amid ongoing debate about the WTA potentially relocating its crown jewel, the WTA Finals, to Saudi Arabia in the fall.
