Azarenka withdraws from Sydney
Monday 12 January 2009
Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from the Medibank International Sydney due to a viral illness.
The newly crowned Brisbane International champion informed tournament organisers of her decision today.
She has been replaced in the main draw by Karin Knapp of Italy, who will play wildcard Jarmila Gajdosova in the first round later today.
In women’s singles results, eighth seed Caroline Wozniacki has defeated Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova in convincing fashion 6-1 6-2 early on day two of the tournament.
Australia’s Casey Dellacqua hits centre court later this afternoon when she takes on Italian Sara Errani.
