Serena Williams to play first match since daughter's birth

Serena Williams to play first match since daughter's birth

The 23-Grand Slam victor has not played in tournaments since winning the Australian Open 11 months ago - a feat even more remarkable given she was already two months pregnant at the time.

Djokovic has since slid to 12th in the world rankings, his lowest position in more than a decade.

The Championship will also feature Women's tennis players for the first-time in which former world number one Serena Williams will make her much-anticipated competitive return with an exhibition match on the final day of the Championship. "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", Djokovic told Sport360 in Abu Dhabi.

"To do well here would be an incredible feeling but I'm not going to weigh my whole year and rest of career on the next three, four weeks", she said. The 23-time Grand Slam champion will participate in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi on December 30 against French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. It was a big decision, a big call to make.

She is expected to compete for her 24th at the Australian Open, the first major of the year. Williams won the Australian Open 11 months ago but has not played since because of pregnancy and the birth of her first child, Alexis Olympia, in September.

"I've learned a lesson because I really want to avoid getting to that stage of an injury ever in my career after this".

Djokovic has added Radek Stepanek to his new coaching team spearheaded by American great Andre Agassi. 2017, the 36-year-old has not played a match, as she became pregnant with a girl who was born last September, reports Efe.
