Retirement seems close ...

I hope she can show her best level again consistently, but I have given up my hope ...

I'd be surprised if this was a precursor to a retirement, and I'd guess after the [miracle/surprise/accident] she'd not be careless about :ahem: procreation in future, so that seems unlikely.

More realistically, she realizes her physicality hasn't been up to the task of cracking the top again, she's nursing an injury, and rather than pay the very high cost of a three-plus week stay in the antipodes for herself, her family, and her team, she's gearing up to be fit to tackle the one-week events (Dubai, Doha, etc.) and sunshine double (closer to home, etc.) at full fitness.

I've never been much of a fan of Azarenka, as hardcourt tennis isn't really my thing and she's the purest hard court specialist of the elite players in history, but I'd be glad to see her be both dangerous and healthy for a full season.

I think Vika has a hard time combining motherhood with tennis. She probably just wants to be with her son. I don't really see her getting back to her old level because there hasn't been any kind of steady progress. 2019 wasn't a good year, except for some highlights in (mixed)doubles.

The antipodes........long time since I've seen that description of the two large projections in the South Pacific Ocean used.
