The league runs during 28 November-13 December. It will begin in Manila, the capital city of The Philippines, before moving onto Singapore, Delhi and Dubai.
Ana is set to take on 17-time Grand Slam champion and current world No.1 Serena Williams in a best-of-three sets exhibition match in Denmark. The pair will face off at the "Jyske Bank Boxen" arena on 19 November.

Ana and Nemanja Kontic have ended their coaching partnership by mutual agreement.
Kontic’s contract expired after Wimbledon and, after amicable discussions, the pair decided not to renew it.
Under Kontic’s guidance Ana won three WTA titles this season. She reached the third round of the French Open and exited Wimbledon at the same stage last week.
Ana plans to appoint a new coach in the coming weeks.
