New mother Victoria Azarenka is set to return next month on grass, the former No. 1 announced today. Azarenka hasn’t played since the French Open last year. She gave birth to baby Leo last December and slated a return to tennis on the summer hardcourts, but she’s moved up her comeback by a month.

“My training has been progressing well and I feel ready to start competing,” she posted. “Plus Leo kinda said he wants to see London and Wimbledon.”
Azarenka last played Wimbledon in 2015 losing to Serena Williams. She turns 28 at the end of July.
