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.
