MANILA, Philippines – World No. 2 Victoria Azarenka withdrew from the Dubai Championships because of a bruised bone in her right foot.
Azarenka, who was replaced by Serena Williams as world No. 1 on Monday, said she hurt her fight foot a week ago in Doha, Qatar en route to the final.
She heads off the the United States where she will have the injury evaluated ahead of her plans to play at Indian Wells. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 20, 2013
