Azarenka announced for Auckland


The Australian Open warmup event in Auckland, N.Z. announced this week that Victoria Azarenka was one of its wild cards.

But will she play?


There seems to be little progress in Azarenka’s custody case with the father of her son Leo. And this, despite multiple trips to the courthouse. So don’t buy your tix just yet.

Tennis.Life has learned that Azarenka’s wild card for Auckland was already finalized way back at Wimbledon, when she was actually playing.

It was made public only this week with the announcement of the player fields once the deadline had passed.
