Serena Williams has cast doubt on her participation at the Australian Open, despite returning to action at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.

Williams lost the first set 6-2, won the second 6-3 and then lost the tiebreaker 10-5. And I heard just yesterday that Serena is coming here, so it is obviously very exciting for the tournament.

And the reigning French Open champion, who shocked the tennis world at Roland Garros by becoming the first player from Latvia to win a grand slam title having started the event as an unseeded player, was looking forward to her battle with her "childhood idol". "Motherhood is phenomenal. I was a little anxious out there - I looked at my camp and asked, 'Is Olympia OK?"

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. "I'm taking it one day at a time I'm going to asses everything with Patrick and my team and go from there". "I played some tough matches with him and I always enjoy playing against Novak".

Thomas played in just seven games this season before tearing his left triceps on October 22 and undergoing season-ending surgery. If Jackson manages to hang on to his job after this season, we'll see if he makes further bold predictions for next year.

"It's my first time playing in Abu Dhabi so thank you guys for the support". That tournament is set for January 15 through January 28 at Melbourne Park. "I am going to assess everything with my team before deciding".

Though Djokovic was expected to make a return in 2018, he has chose to start his season early at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, beginning in Abu Dhabi tomorrow.

Her unwillingness to make public any planned appearances other than Abu Dhabi leaves observers to wonder if she wants to wait and see how her training goes. "When you haven't competed for a long while, it takes time to get back up to that pace". But despite also surrendering his world number one ranking during a frustrating year, Murray insists he won't be motivated exclusively by thoughts of Grand Slam glory once he gets back on court.

"It's been a real roller-coaster ride for me for a year and a half with this issue", World No. 12 Djokovic told Sport360 in an interview ahead of his return at the World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.
