LONDON - A knee injury will prevent Victoria Azarenka to participate at Wimbledon.
It's the same injury that forced the sixth world racquet to withdraw from his first round match at the Internationaux de France. Azarenka, twice champion of the Australian Open, has not played since.
The Belarusian was to be the sixth-seeded Grand Slam on grass to be launched Monday. She reached the semifinals twice at Wimbledon and his journey stopped in quarters two other occasions.
Azarenka won three tournaments this season: Brisbane, Indian Wells and Miami.
