Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka made her first appearance on court in one year as she featured in the Kids Day program on Saturday, just hours before the Roland Garros kicked off.

Azarenka, who gave birth to her son Leo six months back, played a few shots on court Philippe Chatrier. And boy, it hardly looked like she hasn’t played competitive tennis since May last year.

“Now there’s a smile we’ve missed! Two-time Major champ @vika7 dropped by Chatrier (with a few of her friends) to help celebrate Kids Day,” Roland Garros wrote on Twitter, to which the Belarusian replied: “Always a pleasure @rolandgarros.”

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old is scheduled to make her comeback at next month’s Mallorca Open as a tune-up for the prestigious Wimbledon Championships, slated to be held from July 3-16.
