Former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka put an end to an injury-marred 2014 season by official withdrawing from the remaining events on the WTA calendar.

The oft-injured 25-year-old Belarussian has dealt with a foot and a knee injury this season which has hampered her play. Via her facebook page, she wrote the following message:

Hi everyone, I have some news to share…Unfortunately I will not be competing in any tournaments for the remainder of the season. It has been a very tough year for me. I have been trying my best to improve day in and day out by pushing and pushing…but that does not appear to be the best approach for me right now. I will use this time to work on making a full recovery and take care of my body to compete at my best next season. I always believe that everything happens for a reason and everything doesn’t happen the way you’d want it to but it is up to you to make the best out of everything that does…and that is exactly what I am going to do.

The sad part about making this decision is not being able to play in these amazing tournaments that I really enjoy playing in every year and performing in front of all of you! You are all truly my motivation and inspiration! I want to thank all my fans and my team for your support. It means a lot to me. I love you guys. There is a great deal for us to accomplish still. And I will be there with all my heart and passion giving you 100% to get it done! Love V

Azarenka, who finished No. 2 last year, is currently No. 25. This is her first season since 2008 without a title on the year. Her last win came at the 2013 Australian Open.
