Novak Djokovic will make his return to tennis in Abu Dhabi at December's World Tennis Championship.

The Serbian has skipped the back end of the current season because of an elbow injury, playing no part since abandoning his Wimbledon quarter-final against Tomas Berdych in July.

But 30-year-old Djokovic will return for the 2018 campaign, and the 12-time grand slam winner is planning an early start with an appearance at the December 28-30 exhibition tournament in the United Arab Emirates.
