Tennis: Fit-again Nadal will return at Abu Dhabi exhibition tournament
MADRID (AFP) - Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal will make his much-anticipated return from a knee injury at an Abu Dhabi exhibition tournament starting December 27, he announced via social networks on Tuesday.
"Can't wait to get back on court in Abu Dhabi at the end of the month," the world No. 4 posted on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
"I won the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in 2010 and 2011 - would love to get my hands on the trophy again this year!" he added.
The 11-time Grand Slam champion started training again at the end of November, having been out of action since his shock second-round defeat at Wimbledon to Czech Lukas Rosol in June.
