Serena loses to Ostapenko in comeback after giving birth

Serena Williams set for likely Australian Open comeback post-pregnancy

The exhibition match will be the highlight of the three-day Mubadala World Tennis Championship as it marks Williams' return to the court for the first time since winning the Australian Open at the start of the year.

"Serena is the greatest women's tennis player of all time, and perhaps the greatest competitor -- man or woman -- that I have seen".

'It's good to be back on court. first matches back are super, incredibly hard especially after having a baby'. I'm excited. It's good to be back on the court. 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.

Her last match was the Australian Open final, which she won despite being two-month pregnant. "I enjoy playing here", said the Latvian.

"I've learned a lesson because I really want to avoid getting to that stage of an injury ever (being) in my career after this.And it was a great lesson to learn to be honest.It was not easy for me to be absent for so long, I'm looking forward to speak to you more hopefully in the year to come", the Serbian maestro said.

Woman Jailed For Three Years For Carrying Painkillers
Jayne Synclair said her sister was in court on Christmas Day but the judge adjourned the case for a day because of her condition. Although legal in Britain, Tramadol is banned in Egypt and several other countries due to its abuse as a heroine substitute.

Roberto Bautista Agut ousted young Russian Andrey Rublev, the youngest player in the draw, by 7-5 6-2 and he will now have a chance to meet Novak Djokovic, in the first match for the Serb since Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old Ostapenko was not even a thought in her parents' mind when Williams turned professional in September 1995.

Williams' problems with her serve continued, but she unleashed a few of her trademark double-handed shots on both sides to break Ostapenko twice at the start of the second set to go 3-0 up. The American great was back on court on Saturday night for her first match after an nearly one-year break - but it was not the result she was hoping for.

"But now, if his injury is fine, he's probably more risky and better if he had some time to recharge". The Serb has not played competitively since and underwent surgery. In the beginning, it felt a little tough.

"It was a wonderful opportunity for me to kind of test where I am at".
