One of the stories of 2016 was the return and then the sudden sabbatical for Victoria Azarenka. The former No. 1 continued her road back to the top of the rankings winning both Indian Wells and Miami, but her resurgence was cut short when she announced her 2016 was over in July due to pregnancy.
Azarenka and boyfriend(?) Bill McKeague are expecting the child in the next month.
“My pregnancy’s been a completely different experience from anything I’ve done before,” Azarenka told the Tennis Channel.. “In theory, you know the process, but to actually go through that you truly start to deeply understand the magic of it. And it’s been quite a ride, I have to say.”
And following the birth, Azarenka says she wants to return to tennis as soon as possible.
“I don’t feel I’m missing out on something I won’t be able to do again,” Azarenka said. “For me, it’s about getting to where I want to be and be back there again. That’s my ultimate goal.
“I don’t try put any time frame for myself. I would love to make it as soon as possible, but giving myself a reasonable time to fully recover and be ready. I’m not going to rush anything, and it’s hard to tell before the birth actually happens. So, we’ll see, but I’m positive that I can be playing tennis pretty soon.”
