Victoria Azarenka preps ’19 (video)

BRADENTON, Fla. – It’s a big year for Victoria Azarenka.

After a season and a half of competitive tennis following her return from having son Leo, the 29-year-old (when did THAT happen? Time sure does fly) finds herself ranked No. 51 to start the 2019 season.

She’s obviously a far better player than that ranking. But as she preps the 2019 season at the IMG Academy in Florida with old/new coach Wim Fissette, Azarenka hasn’t played a match in nearly three months.

The Belarussian cut her 2018 season short, after she retired in the first set of her quarterfinal match against Camila Giorgi in Tokyo in mid-September.

She’s looking great, and in great spirits. Here’s a glimpse of her at practice Dec. 14 at the IMG Academy.
