(March 12, 2014) Two- time Sony Open winner and current World No. 4, Victoria Azarenka, has withdrawn this year’s Sony Open due to a foot injury.
“I am very sad not to be able to compete at this year’s Sony Open in Miami,” said Azarenka. “I love playing in the US and my results in the past were also great. But it’s been now over a year that it seems that bad luck has been following me. I couldn’t play in Miami last year with a problem in my ankle and now this with my foot. It is time for me to think about my recovery and will work hard for that. I wish the tournament all the best for this 2014 edition. Miami is an amazing place and a great tournament. I hope to be there next year fully recovered and able to be competing for the title.”
The tournament begins on March 17, 2014.
I am pulling out of Sony Open because of my injured foot :( With your support there is no doubt I will be back on the court soon! Luv, V.
