Wimbledon without Azarenko
Victoria Azarenko withdraws from UK Open Championship — Wimbledon
The world sixth seed is choosing not to play at the Grand Slam’s third tennis tournament because of a knee injury received at the Roland Garros, during the opening round against Italian Karin Knapp.
Belarus’ first seed, Victoria Azarenko, will miss the third tournament of the Grand Slam this season — Wimbledon. At last year’s event, she reached the quarterfinals, where she lost to would-be winner, Serene Williams. As a result, Victoria will lose 460 points in her personal rating and could fall in position in the WTA rankings.
