BANGKOK (AP) -- Serena Williams will play Victoria Azarenka in an exhibition match in Thailand next month in a matchup of the world's top two women's players.

The Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand announced on Thursday that the match will be part of the regular invitational event in Hua Hin, a popular holiday destination southwest of Bangkok.

Azarenka has twice played exhibitions matches there, while this will be Williams' first appearance at the event.
