Andy Murray will return to tennis next week at the Abu Dhabi exo where he’ll face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Thursday, the day after Christmas.
The Scot, who just won the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year on Sunday, hasn’t played since undergoing back surgery in September. He was scheduled to play in an exo in Barbados last month before the event was canceled.
“I’ve been training and having rehab every day and will continue to do so right up until just before Christmas when I fly to Abu Dhabi,” Murray said. “Getting back to playing competitively is the next step in my preparations for the new season, which starts for me at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.”
Murray will be joined by Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Stanislas Wawrinka, Tsonga and Novak Djokovic at the lucrative 6-man tournament in the UAE.
