Serena Williams is gearing up to take on her sister at the Abu Dhabi Tennis Championship in December
Serena Williams has been added to the high profile line-up for this year’s Mubadala World Tennis Championship, which will take place from December 27 to 29 in Abu Dhabi. The 23-time Grand Slam champion will take on her sister Venus Williams on the first day of the 11th edition of the championship.
Abu Dhabi was where Serena made her return to competitive action last year, after nearly a year away from the game following the birth of her daughter, and since then, has gone on to have a strong season reaching the finals at both Wimbledon and the US Open.
“I loved playing in Abu Dhabi last year. I am excited to return to such a beautiful city and to see my fans. This time, I’ll be playing against my sister, so the match will be even more special,” Serena Williams said.
