Murray ready for Boxing Day return in Abu Dhabi after back surgery

Johannesburg: Andy Murray will play his first competitive tennis match since September against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi next week, according to reports.

According to Sport24, Mubadala World Tennis Championship organisers confirmed on Tuesday the Wimbledon champion, who has been sidelined since surgery for a back problem, would play at the hard-court event also featuring Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Murray said that coming back from injury is never easy and the lineup this year is so strong but it`s exactly the test he needs to see where his game is at.

On Sunday, Murray was voted the BBC sports personality of the year after becoming the first British man to win the Wimbledon singles in 77 years, the report said.
