World No.1 Serena Williams will make a comeback at next month's Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo. Williams, who has withdrawn from the US Open to recover from foot surgery, is among eight of the world's top 10 players coming to the tournament in Tokyo, which opens on September 26. The three-time US Open champion cut her foot in July shortly after winning Wimbledon, and her appearance in Tokyo would be her first since then. It would be also her first time at the Toray Pan Pacific Open.
Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva, French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic and Samantha Stosur also have entered the tournament. Two-time champion Maria Sharapova is also coming back to defend her title.
