The short tennis “off season” is over and the top pros are now returning to play, with an exhibition this weekend, Hopman Cup starting Monday, and a tournament next week.
Roger and Rafa had inauspicious returns to the game in the World Tennis Championship exhibition in Abu Dhabi this week. The Fed was smashed by Djokovic (2 and 1); while Rafa nursed his ailing shoulder in a loss to David Ferrer.
HOPMAN CUP – The American team of Mardy Fish and Bethanie Matek-Sands will be featured, starting Monday on Tennis Channel.
LIVE FROM DOHA – and the first tournament of the year, The Qatar Open will be broadcast live on the Tennis Channel, starting on Thursday.
