Former world number one Amelie Mauresmo, who quit in 2009, returned to tennis on Friday to work alongside current top-ranked player Victoria Azarenka.

"Amelie will be joining us," Azarenka's coach Sam Sumyk told a website.

"We would be making a mistake if we were to deprive ourselves of her kind of experience and ability. Amelie is Vika's choice and from the moment she expressed that wish, I have tried to make it happen", he added.
