Updates from Tuesday, Dec. 17

Andy Murray remains on course to make his competitive return to action at next week's Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.

Murray will feature in the three-day event alongside Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, and commented via Sky Sports:

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.

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.

Coming back from injury is never easy and the line-up this year is so strong but it's exactly the test I need to see where my game is at. I'm looking forward to being part of what is always a great tournament.
