Ana will take on Kirsten Flipkens in a special exhibition match in Antwerp, Belgium on 11 December.
The match, held on a Wednesday night, will form part of the Kim Clijsters Invitational, an annual event organized by the former world No.1 ranked Belgian and her management company Golazo.
"It's going to be a lot of fun," said Ana. "Kim invited me to take part and I jumped at the chance."
The winner of the October competition is Nemanja Zivkovic from Serbia. He correctly answered "Auckland" to the question, "At which event will Ana begin the 2014 season?"
Congratulations to him, he wins an adidas item signed by Ana.
The November competition will be launched shortly.
Ana's appearance in the semi-finals of the GARANTi KOZA Tournament of Champions in Sofia on Saturday brought the curtain down on her 2013 season.
Ana surrendered a 3-0, double-break advantage in the deciding set as she lost what turned out to be her final match of 2013 2-6, 6-1, 6-3 to top seed Simona Halep.
Ana narrowly lost an undulating three set match to Russian world No.25 Elena Vesnina. The 25-year-old was defeated 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(1) in her final group match at the GARANTi KOZA Tournament of Champions in Sofia.
The second seed started poorly but turned things around spectacularly. After losing the first set she took the second then moved ahead 5-2 in the decider, only to allow her opponent back in, before losing the tiebreak.
