Arrive in Paris & see #Azarenka not playing #FrenchOpen. Misread signals but coach Sam Sumyk tells me she's training well & "pain free"
Everyone is reading into she hasn't started practicing, but really we pretty much knew this. It was said the other day as far as we know she hasn't hit a ball since Indian Wells, but she's been tweeting gym work a lot.
I would guess she is heading to Europe to practice. She wanted to release this now, because otherwise everyone would have auto assumed in Europe = playing Roland Garros, and she doesn't want to mislead people. I would guess though Wimbledon is still in her plans, otherwise why do you head to Europe for the US summer hard court season.
I think she might try Wimbledon, since it´s kind of symbolic for a new beginning, when this whole mess started there last year. But I think the US Open hardcourt series is a more realistic entry point.
My fav has won 24 Slams, I´m always right!

Quiet. 24 SLAMS.
Hi there. I have always liked and supported Vika but this is the first time I've been here. As a Maria fan, I know how it feels to see your fav constantly withdrawing from tournaments to tournaments. So I hope Vika heals her foot injury fully and as soon as possible because the tour needs her so bad, and I'm starting to miss her too
Please tennis god let Vika heal fast and be able to come back at Wimbledon because I will go to Wimbledon this year

I think things should be clearer very soon. She's on a plane to Europe with her team right (at least Meilen tweeted she's heading to Europe). Why would you do that in the middle of rehab if you had no plans to play in Europe.
I agree. If she starts practice now, that's around 5 weeks before Wimbledon and that's substantial so it may be okay for her to play in Wimbly.
Of course, this is assuming she starts now and, from the looks of it, she is!
