HERNING, Denmark - Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki met the Danish press on Wednesday ahead of their exhibition clash - the Energi Denmark Champions Battle - which is set for Thursday.

"I've been looking forward to this day for a long time," Wozniacki said. "It's been three years since I played my last match in Denmark, and playing my good friend Serena here is a dream come true."

Williams played the Energi Denmark Champions Battle last year too, against another former No.1.

"I've been looking forward to visiting Herning again," Williams commented. "I had such a great time playing here last year, so when I had the chance to come here with Caroline I said yes right away."

The two have been BFFs on the tour for years - and the relationship could keep going for years.

"We've been joking that I'll follow Caroline around the tour when I finish playing myself," Williams said at Wednesday's press conference, smiling. "Being in the box, maybe even coaching Caroline!"

On Thursday they'll play for a Shamballa bracelet worth 100,000 Danish krones (just over $14,000).

There will be men's doubles to begin the night - Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau, the No.1-ranked team in the world, will face former Wimbledon champions Frederik Nielsen and Jonathan Marray.

The event will take place at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning - click here for tickets.
