Japanese tennis star Osaka Naomi will make her comeback at the Brisbane International tournament in Australia that starts in December.
The tournament organizer announced her return to the sport on its official website on Friday.
Osaka has not competed in world tour events since taking part in a tournament held in Tokyo in September last year. In July this year, she announced that she had given birth to a baby girl.
Osaka said, "I am really excited about getting back out on court and competing."
