Serena Williams' comeback at Mubadala World Tennis Championship ends in defeat

Getty Images for Glamour Serena Williams shared an Instagram post reflecting on her year

By this time she was moving better and she started hitting more winners. "So, in my eyes, I feel it was a wonderful, wonderful match for me".

Murray, who has struggled with a persistent hip injury since the Briton's quarterfinal exit at Wimbledon in July, pulled out of the US Open and dropped to 16th in the world rankings. The Masters 1000 we did already a year ago with Sascha's (Zverev's) two titles, and also the other tournaments.

"I think we can expect the same from Djokovic because he is in the same league as Roger and Rafa".

"It was really nice to play him four times, I think it was great, nearly four tournaments in a row". "I looked at my camp and was like, 'Is Olympia okay?'"

Serena Williams is back in action.

Although the American has not officially confirmed that she will play at the Australian Open, Williams remains registered for the first Grand Slam of the year in Melbourne, where she won while she was pregnant the last time round.

It is a surprise to see the American back in action so quickly, but she definitely has her eyes on a 24th Grand Slam trophy in Melbourne, but made a decision to compete in Abu Dhabi for her comeback, "I am delighted to be returning to the court in Abu Dhabi for the first time since the birth of my daughter in September".

She returned to the tennis court Saturday, competing in her first match since having her baby, but lost to Jelena Ostapenko at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.


Another player in the field looking to build on his successful 2017 is South African Kevin Anderson.

"It is dubbed an "exhibition", but the tennis this week in Abu Dhabi is great - it is very competitive and everyone is going to give it their all".

"But it was great and I'm glad I could do it here". We all are eager to see what Novak is going to do when he comes back.

"I'm excited. It's good to be back on court, this is such a good time for me", she told Eurosport.

"It's been a really roller coaster ride for me for a year and a half with this (elbow) issue.I've never had surgery in my life, I've never had any major injuries that kept me away from the tour for such a long time".

Abu Dhabi: US Open runner-up Kevin Anderson defeated Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 7-6 (0) in the men's final to emerge victor at the Mubadala Championship in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Thiem, a two-time French Open semi-finalist, has been one of the standout players from the younger generation and has been able to challenge the so-called "Big Four" but he has a reputation of overplaying, and running out of steam towards the tail-end of the year.
