Victoria Azarenka announces pregnancy

Earlier on this year Victoria Azarenka became just the third player to hold the Indian Wells and Miami double in a calendar year which was last achieved by Kim Clijsters back in 2005 and will is looking to follow in similar footsteps for the Belgian once again.

Back in 2007 Kim retired from the sport but did return in 2009 and during that time did have a child and Victoria Azarenka has today announced she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend and will miss the rest of the season but has expressed how inspired she has been by other female athletes who have had a baby and returned to the top of the game and a good example of this is Kim Clijsters who a few years after returning to the tour was back as world number one and won the Australian Open!

Azarenka will be missed on the tour throughout the rest of the season after such a strong start but the knee was troubling her back in May with her last match being her first round defeat at Roland Garros.

This does of course mean the Belorussian will miss the Olympic Games in Rio this summer but has many exciting things to look forward to in the future and I wish her well!
