(Reuters) Serena Williams will headline a new hard-court tournament in Kentucky next month, her first action since the Fed Cup in February.

The inaugural Top Seed Open in Lexington runs from Aug. 10-16 and will serve as a warm-up for the U.S. Open for the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion.

Williams, 38, has confirmed she will compete in the U.S. Open, scheduled to begin in New York on Aug. 31.

Sloane Stephens, the 2017 U.S. Open champion, also will be in the field in Kentucky.

The WTA Tour returns from its coronavirus-related hiatus with the clay-court Palermo Ladies Open in Italy starting Aug. 3.
