Serena Williams has been added to the star-studded line-up for this year's Mubadala World Tennis Championship (MWTC), which will take place from December 27 to 29, 2018.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion will be joining her sister, Venus Williams, in the women's side of the 11th edition of the Championship - with lucky fans having the chance to see the siblings battle it out in the UAE capital in addition to all the entertainment in store for the family on Day One of the Championship.

What's more, in order to get more young fans to watch the Williams sisters in action, organisers are encouraging families can take advantage of the special offer whereby children can enter for free on purchase of an adult ticket on day one of the MWTC.

The 37-year-old Serena will be aiming to equal the record for the most Grand Slam wins (24) at the Australian Open in January 2019 - and MWTC will serve as a fantastic chance to sharpen her tennis skills ahead of this important tournament.

Commenting on her second appearance in Abu Dhabi, Serena said: "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."

Tickets can be purchased from www.ticketmaster.ae or by calling 800 86 823 from within the UAE or +971 4 366 2289 from outside the country and all Virgin Megastores.

Fans looking to attend all three days of the Championship can avail of a special 20% discount on ticket prices while families can take advantage of the special offer whereby children can enter for free on purchase of an adult ticket on day one of the Championship.

Serena made her return to competitive action at MWTC 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.

Williams who has dominated the game for over 20 years continues to be an inspiration to many both on and off the court and her list of accomplishments is long. She is only the second player to win two "Serena Slams" - an achievement where a player holds all four Grand Slams at once. She was voted 2018 WTA Comeback Player of the Year and will also have a starring role in one of the biggest night's in fashion at next year's Met Gala (to be held in January 2019), where she will be co-chair along with Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Gucci's Alessandro Michele in New York City.
