It was the match of the tournament and a great clash of top-six rivals, pushing each other to the limits in the last test before they kick off the official season next week in Doha and Pune. It's different in the past couple of years, but I like challenge in life, because from the challenges we grow and we learn.

On the women's side, Osaka has become hot property after a breakthrough 2018 in which she captured her maiden WTA title in Indian Wells then won the US Open at the expense of Serena Williams, who had a meltdown in the final.

And speaking after the semi-final, Anderson revealed that he noticed a difference in Nadal's serve. "I am more or less satisfied with how the body held".

Cyrus posted three black-and-white photos of her and Hemsworth on the singer's Instagram and Twitter accounts on Wednesday. Among the guests at the wedding were the couple's siblings Noah and Brandi Cyrus and Chris and Luke Hemsworth .

The South African won the first set 6-4, but the 14-time grand slam champion came from behind and took the 2nd 7-5.

"I won a grand slam and reached two grand slam finals. The match (in Abu Dhabi) is a step forward for me, that's the main thing". When you play someone like this at this level you want to win.

"Men's tennis is as good as it can be in terms of competition, in terms of personalities, it's good to see new faces", he said after his fourth title victory on Saturday in the UAE capital.

Earlier, Russian Karen Khachanov, ATP-ranked no.11 player, beat Austrian Dominic Thiem, the ATP-ranked no.8, to finish third in the tournament. "We weren't expecting to play two hours and 30 minutes just before the start of the season", said Djokovic who is building towards an assault on a possible seventh Australian Open title next month.

Nadal and tour players Andy Murray, Nick Kyrgios, Kei Nishikori and Tsonga promoted the Brisbane International this morning with a light-hearted group picture with New Year's Eve glasses and hats.
