Serena Williams takes to the court in an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi on December 30.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner will take on a fellow Major winner, Jelena Ostapenko.

This marks her return to tennis just under four months after giving birth.

The 36-year-old last played a competitive match at the Australian Open in January when she was pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., whose father is Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian.

Williams has been targeting a return for that same tournament, which is just a few weeks away, and now it has been confirmed that she will take part in a warm-up tournament.

Serena’s first opponent stunned Simona Halep to win the French Open last June.
