Victoria Azarenka limped out of Wimbledon on Wednesday and blasted the state of the All England Club courts which she believes are compromising player safety. She withdrew just minutes before she was due to face Italian Flavia Pennetta. A right knee injury, suffered in her first round win on Monday which left her in tears and requiring 10 minutes of treatment, put paid to her hopes after an MRI scan showed extensive bruising to the knee. “The court was not in a very good condition that day. My opponent fell twice; I fell badly; there were some other people who fell after,” said Azarenka. — AFP
