When Victoria Azarenka shocked the tennis world with her pregnancy news in July this year, many expected her to stop playing the sport, at least for a long time.

But, the Belarusian tennis star is keen on resuming her on-court life soon as she aims to regain the supremacy she once held on the Women’s Tennis Association Tour.

“I don’t feel I’m missing out on something I won’t be able to do again,” the 27-year-old told the Tennis Channel. “For me, it’s about getting to where I want to be and be back there again. That’s my ultimate goal.

“I don’t try to put any time frame for myself. I’d love to make it as soon as possible, but giving myself a reasonable time to fully recover and be ready.

“I’m not going to rush anything, and it’s hard to tell before the birth actually happens. So, we will see, but I’m positive that I can be playing tennis pretty soon.”

Azarenka, who has been dating Bill McKeague, is due to give birth next month.
