  • The 30-year-old Scot has decided to travel to Abu Dhabi to do some further practice

Serena Williams made her eagerly anticipated return to court at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship (MWTC) on Saturday but her comeback ended in defeat to Jelena Ostapenko.

Serena Williams went through the change of a lifetime this year when she welcomed her first child, daughter Alexis, with now-husband Alexis Ohanian, and she's taking a look back at the whole process as 2017 comes to a close.

She initially struggled to get enough power behind her serve and missed several straightforward shots as French Open champion Ostapenko claimed the first set.

That's not bad for someone who hasn't played competitive tennis in almost a year, all things considered.The legendary athlete last took the tennis court in January, when she defeated her sister Venus in the climactic finale of the Australian Open. "I think everybody wants to know how he's playing again and we'll see his first matches here". "But it's really good", she said in her on-court interview.

Former world number one and 12-time Grand Slam title victor Novak Djokovic will be more unsafe than ever when he makes his long-awaited return from an elbow injury, top 10 rival Dominic Thiem said Wednesday. "I am going to assess everything with my team before deciding".

Tantray alias Noor Trali was during a cordon and search operation in Samboora village of Pampore in Pulwama district, yesterday. Tantray, 47, who was only three feet tall, was reported to be behind the recent attacks in the Valley.

Williams also has more grand slam singles titles - 23 - than the age of her rival Saturday, Ostapenko. But she was nowhere near her best in the first set before fighting back and winning the second.

"In the beginning, it felt a little tough. I knew I was not going to fall over and break", she said. "I enjoy playing here", said the Latvian.

This will be the first-time women players have played in the Championship.

Unexpectedly, a shocking news emerged after it was announced that Serena would be participating in the exhibition match in Abu Dhabi, looking to gauge her level before entering the opening Major of the year.

The men's field in Abu Dhabi features US Open semi-finalist Pablo Carreno Busta, Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut and 20-year-old Russian Andrey Rublev apart from Djokovic, Thiem and Anderson. An aggressive Anderson swept the tiebreaker.
