Azarenka withdraws from French Open due to foot injury
Belarussian tennis star Victoria Azarenka has reportedly confirmed her withdrawal from the upcoming French Open tournament due to a foot injury.
The world number five is still recovering from the injury that forced her to withdraw from tournaments in Doha, Miami, Madrid and Rome in recent weeks.
According to the BBC, Azarenka, who has played just one match in the past two months in which she lost to American Lauren Davis at Indian Wells in early March, said on Twitter that she would not be able to compete in Roland Garros this year, adding that she is working hard on her recovery and getting back on court.
Azarenka's injury to her left foot flared up during the defence of her Australian Open title in January, where she lost to Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska in the quarter-finals.
The French Open begins on Sunday and runs until 8 June, the report added.
