Rafael Nadal is said to have committed to the new International Premier Tennis League at a very high price.

The Telegraph reports that the world No. 1 will earn $1 million per night for his participation in a league that will begin after the 2014 tour seasons end in November, and last through December. Five cities—Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, Singapore, and Hong Kong—will have teams, which will consist of active and retired players, and a draft will be held this weekend in Dubai.

The Telegraph also reports that Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki will participate. Both Nadal and Azarenka share the same communications manger, Benito-Perez Barbadillo, who is working with the new league. Andy Murray and Agnieszka Radwanska are also said to be in discussions with league organizer Mahesh Bhupathi, the doubles player who briefly had a role on Murray's management team over the past year.
