Injured Azarenka out of Madrid, Rome


PARIS - Former world number one Victoria Azarenka pulled out of the Madrid and Rome WTA events on Saturday with a left foot injury which could put her French Open hopes in doubt. The Belarus star has not played since a second round loss to Lauren Davis at Indian Wells in the first week of March. The 24-year-old announced on Facebook that she would be forced to miss the Madrid and Rome events in May, both crucial warm-up tournaments ahead of the French Open, the second Grand Slam of the season, which gets under way on May 25. "My recovery is still going on but I am still not fit enough to play these two events," said Azarenka. She has only played three tournaments in 2014, making the final in Brisbane, exiting in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open before her early loss in California.–AFP
