As a custody dispute over baby Leo with ex Billy McKeague continues, 2-time champion Victoria Azarenka withdrew yesterday from the Australian Open.
“It’s unfortunate ‘Vika’ is unable to travel to Australia this year. The Australian Open is her favourite tournament and she’s looking forward to returning to Melbourne next year,” tournament director Craig Tiley said.
The 28-year-old former No. 1 has not played since Wimbledon.
