Nadal Expected Back On The Tour In Abu Dhabi Late December

According to Rafael Nadal himself, he has no idea when his troublesome left knee will allow him to return to tennis and as of last week he still hadnít touched a racket in his rehabilitation process. However the organizers of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi maintain the Majorcan will make his comeback at their exhibition tournament, beginning December 27.



An Energized Murray Ready For Battle In Tokyo This Week

US Open champion and Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray has reassessed his goals and ambitions now that he has won that elusive Grand Slam title. Before his New York triumph the 25 year-old Scot viewed winning a major as all important but in the last three weeks he has re-evaluated and sees new targets like becoming the world no.1 and providing top level performances in his each tournament he plays.


Abu Dhabi Grabs Six Of Top Ten Men

The Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition in Abu Dhabi has recruited six of the world's top 10 players, including the injured Rafael Nadal for the  December 27-29 event in Zayed Sports City. Nadal will join Andy Murray. Novak Djokovic, David Ferrer, Tomas Berdych and Janko Tipsarevic.


Murray, A Winner Of A Major, Feels Different

Andy Murray stepped onto the court in Tokyo for his first match since becoming a title-winner at a major, with the Scot producing a feel-good opening victory at the Japan Open in Tokyo. The top seed admitted that it might take some time for his new elite tennis status to sink in after claiming both the Olympic gold medal and the US Open crown. For right now, it's business as usual for the No. 3, who win three straight titles last autumn during a torrid run of form through Asia. "It doesn't feel much different as I play now," said Murray after beating I've Karlovic.
