Rafael Nadal spent seven months away from the game of tennis to recuperate from a knee injury.

In his return to the courts, he looked like the Nadal of old, winning his first match of the year.

The 26-year-old Spaniard partnered with Juan Monaco to beat the Czech Republic pairing of Frantisek Cermak and Lukas Diouhy 6-3, 6-2 at the VTR tournament in Chile.

Nadal, who has won over $50 million in prize money on tour, had not played since June 28, 2012 when he was upset in the second round at Wimbledon.

But on Friday, Kerber had an answer for everything Serena sent her way.

Williams loses to Stosur, referee in U.S. Open final

Serena Williams was so upset at getting outplayed by Australian tennis player Samantha Stosur, that she started ranting and raving at every close line call that went against her in the match.

Stosur, hitting powerful strokes from the baseline, looked fresher than the more-experienced Williams right from the opening game.

The ninth-seeded Stosur became the first Australian woman to win a major championship since Evonne Goolagong Cawley at Wimbledon in 1980.

The U.S. Open was only the third title for the 27-year-old Stosur at any tour-level event.

Stosur took advantage of Williams’ 25 unforced errors.

Williams played very well all week despite being 28th-ranked in the tournament and ended up finishing second.

WESTERN & SOUTHERN OPEN, Cincinnati: Serena Williams barely escapes Hradecka

Serena Williams jokes with the media

MASON, OHIO — Serena Williams is back on the rise after a layoff of almost a year, won her 12th straight match in the first round of the Cincinnati Western & Southern Open.

Williams, a former world number one and 13-time Grand Slam champion, defeated Czech Lucie Hradecka 6-3, 7-6 (7/5).

She has improved her world ranking from 175th in the world to 31, winning titles in consecutive starts at Stanford and Toronto.

Hradecka, who had battled back from 1-5 down in the second set to take a 6-5 lead en route to the tiebreaker, finally double-faulted on match point.

Williams returned in June from an 11-month absence due to injury and illness, which started with a cut foot that required surgery shortly after her 2010 Wimbledon win and also included dangerous blood clots in her lungs.

Her 12-match winning streak matches Kim Clijsters and Victoria Azarenak for the longest on the WTA tour this year.
