"It's my first time playing in Abu Dhabi so thank you guys for the support", Williams said on the court following the loss.

"I don't know if I am totally ready to come back on the Tour yet", she said.

"But now, if his injury is fine, he's probably more risky and better if he had some time to recharge". "This was such a good time for me".

"Knowing that I have won 23 Grand Slam titles and several other titles, I don't think I have anything more left to prove", she said.

Nadal and Federer also ended the year at one and two in the world.

Both players will feature on the final day regardless of the result, with the victor taking on either Dominic Thiem or Kevin Anderson in the final, while the loser will compete in the third-place play-off. There are players returning from injuries, but apart from Novak, nobody else will make a comeback like Roger and Rafa. "I was pretty unhealthy for most of this year and I am getting there but it is a slow process".

Brian Lott, Chief Communications Officer of Mubadala, the title sponsor of the tournament, added, "For the tennis fans in the UAE, having Serena here as part of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship weekend is a thrilling opportunity to see even more world-class tennis".

There is no precedent for a 36-year-old 23-time Grand Slam victor to return to tennis after having a baby.

She then took a sabbatical to give birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia, in September.

Despite giving birth just four months ago to her daughter, Williams was very competitive with French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in losing 2-6, 6-3, 10-5 (in a deciding tie-breaker).

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 exhibition match in Abu Dhabi against Jelena Ostapenko was the American's first match for 11 months. "But it's really good".

"I think it is great. So, in my eyes, I feel it was a wonderful, wonderful match for me". "I'm excited, it's good to be back on the court".

U.S. Open runner-up Kevin Anderson defeated Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 7-6 (0) in the men's final.
