Wuhan, China:

Wild card entry Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from the Wuhan Open with an injured right foot and will miss the rest of the season.

The two-time Australian Open champion says "unfortunately I will not be competing in any tournaments for the remainder of the season."

Azarenka said she had been trying to improve each day "but that does not appear to be the best approach for me right now."

She will use the time to "take care of my body to compete at my best next season."
