World No. 1 Roger Federer will open his 2010 campaign at the Abu Dhabi exhibition later the month.
The exo begins on December 30 and features three rounds of knockout style competition. Also scheduled to appear are Rafael Nadal, Nikolay Davydenko and Stanislas Wawrinka.
Federer will travel to Doha for the Qatar Open thereafter, and then onto Melbourne in search of his 16th career Grand Slam title.
Federer finished 2009 as the No. 1 player in the world, the fifth time in his career he's done that.
