Brisbane - Brisbane International organisers say Serena Williams still plans to compete at the December 30 to January 5 tournament despite minor surgery on her big toes which forced her to withdraw from a December 29 exhibition in Thailand.

Brisbane tournament director Cameron Pearson said on Thursday he had been assured by Williams' agent that the WTA player of the year will "be fit and ready" for the event at the Queensland Tennis Centre.

Williams has been affected by chronic foot problems since treading on glass and badly cutting both feet in 2010.
