Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, the two top players in the world, will walk down the ramp in a fashion show in Thailand a day before their exhibition match Saturday, Dec. 28.
The celebrity fashion show, "Made in Thailand Night with Serena and Victoria," will be held at the Inter Continental Hua Hin Resort, Bangkok Post reported.
It wouldn't be the first time for the Belarusian professional tennis player to strut her stuff in the cat walk. Azarenka has also participated in the fashion show when she lost to Li Na in the charity tournament in the 2012-13 season.
The dresses that Williams and Azarenka are going to wear will be crafted from high-quality silk by renowned Thai designer Unawan Tangkarawakun.
Luwan Liptapanlop, president of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand, was reportedly thrilled to have Williams and Azarenka to have the top two tennis players in the world in their country.
"It is an honor to have tennis superstars Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka to help promote Thai silk and Thailand," he said.
Across the sporting world, we unavoidably run into female athletes who are radiant, stunning and classy as they are brilliant and clever at what they do. Do you think Williams and Azarenka could pass for a fashion model?
The Hua Hin Tennis Exhibition is an exhibition game in women's tennis held at the start of the year. It started 4 years ago in 2010. Past winners were Maria Sharapova, Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka, and Li Na.
Azarenka will play in the Hua Hin tournament for the third time. Williams, meanwhile, will play for the charity tournament for the first time and is excited to compete in Thailand. "I am really looking forward to it," Williams told Tennis World USA.
"I've heard fantastic things about Hua Hin and about Thailand," she added. "I'm excited to see all my Thai fans," Williams said.
Both Williams and Azarenka are expected to fly to Australia after the tournament in Thailand to participate in the 2014 Brisbane International, and subsequently to the Australian Open.
