Tennis superstar Serena Williams has confirmed her return to the ASB Classic next year.
The 23‑time Grand Slam singles champion is the first big name announced for next year's tournament in Auckland where she will make her second appearance.
Williams competed at the ASB Classic in 2017 but was dispatched in the second round by American Madison Brengle ‑ a result that still lingers in her mind.
Williams says she wants to win that title so bad.
