Andy Murray is set to play in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship
exhibition tournament for the first time since the tournament's inauguration in 2009, where two time champion Rafael Nadal is hoping to make his return to the sport. Novak Djokovic, David Ferrer, Tomas Berdych and Janko Tipsarevic also feature.
The tournament runs from the 27th to the 29th of December and finishes two days prior to the start of the new tennis season. Due to a mix up with the seeding, the US Open champion finds himself seeded third and will face Janko Tipsarevic in the first round on Wednesday 27th December at 5pm local time. The winner will face Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals.
Although only an exhibition tournament, and thus no ranking points on offer, it is still expected that the players will be looking to take this tournament seriously with the new season lurking just around the corner.
