However, the main item on the menu for tennis fans will be the sinฌgles match - a clash of the titans between former world No 1 Williams and Sharapova. The mixed doubles draw was made yesterday at the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand by its president Suwat Liptapanlop.
"We got the confirmation that both Venus and Maria will be arrivฌing on the morning of January 1 from LA. They will play the exhibiฌtion on Saturday at 2.30pm in Hua Hin," the LTAT president said.
The country's No 1 men's singles player Danai could not be happier about playing alongside the Russian pinup girl, winner of three Grand Slam titles.
"I've seen her on several occaฌsions especially at the Wimbledon and used to cheer her on. I'm pretฌty pleased to be playing the doubles," said Danai, who is still bothered by a shoulder injury.
