Vai Victoria i writing Italy reprended joke tennis.i no good health,i lost home 7 may,i hope you wins in tennis,ciao kiss from Italy..

can´t wait VIKA, come back and bring queen Serena with you!

Hello guys tell Vika to take an Italian coach, the advice Francesco Cinà the former coach Roberta Vinci if he chooses will always win a hug from Gianfarlo superfans

Victoria you are perfect mom and tennis player!!!

Can’t wait to have Vika back on the courts!!!

Your holding your baby in your arm and you still play tennis better than me champion

It might look like the tennis world is passing you by, tournaments coming and going, rankings moving up and down. But stay strong because you're playing for two people now. When the time comes, both of you will be ready to, in the words of the song by Photronique, "Take on the world...(and) fight till you win".

Hi Vika, am wicked sorry to hear about what you're goiing through. You're doing the right thing by not going to Australia. We'll miss you on the court though, and we are wishing you God speed, good luck, and personal best wishes.

Will you be playing at AO in January,Victoria Azarenka? I hope so,have missed your game play..

We are proud that you are strong!

don't worry your soon will play football later.

Go Victoria can't wait to see you play again

From this video I can tell how much you love your son and tennis. You'll turn him into a champion: he already loves it! I hope you can come back to competition, we all miss you

You can do it, resolve it and move forward. Kids do need both parents unless one is abusive or both :( if this not case then work out a fair custody agreements. Dads, real dads are just as vital as moms. Don't let the child suffer in parents acting like kids! Settle!

Nothing last forever - breaks will always bring up the right things to follow 💔🇧🇪

Buenas Noches Victoria. Azarenka, yo Omar Santin y Alicia Mazzaferro mi compañera de la vida queremos verte pronto en los escenarios del Tenis Mundial Vamos Campeona un Saludo Cordial desde Argentina!!!!!

Para cuando juegas !! Ya quiero verte en una cancha de tenis disputando una final....un abrazo Victoria....desde Monterrey, México

Это главная Победа!!!!!! Но мы ждем тебя Вика---- вся страна!!!! Вся Беларусь и вместе со всеми твоими болельщиками по всему миру!!!!

Викусечка, золотце, какие вы красавцы! Успехов в решении семейных проблем! Мы соскучились! )))

Love it. What a way to get back and what a time to start your child. GREAT! 😊

Hoping you can come back very very soon Victoria

Go go Victoria Azarenka... its always a joy to see you play and win. Love ❤️ from Singapore 🇸🇬 🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾

Vídeo inédito da nossa último partida! Eu sabia que havia coloca você no bolso** não no colo hahahaha Fábio Romeu

Missing you very much VIKA. Your first priority will be your son for sure. I hope you will be able to win the battle you deserve it.

My incredible fans and friends, who have supported me throughout my career deserve to know why I may not be able to compete at the U.S Open this year.

The day my son Leo was born, back in December of last year, was by far the happiest day of my life. I now have a brand new appreciation for how new mothers - and fathers – juggle the many different responsibilities for their families. However, like most working mothers, despite my unconditional love for my son, I am faced with a difficult situation which may not allow me to return to work right away.

In Belarus back in March, with my family in tow, I started working toward the goal of returning to the tennis tour and competing at a high level by July 31st. I was able to return early, playing in Mallorca mid-June followed by Wimbledon.

Shortly after Wimbledon, Leo’s father and I separated and as we work to resolve some of the legal processes, the way things stand now is that the only way I can play in the US Open this year is if I leave Leo behind in California, which I’m not willing to do.

Balancing child care and a career is not easy for any parent, but it is a challenge I am willing to face and embrace. I want to support men and women everywhere who know it is ok to be a working mother - or father. No one should ever have to decide between a child and their career, we are strong enough to do both.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the support I have received from women and men around the world who recognize the importance of supporting working moms and our right to be with our children. I look forward to hopefully having positive developments soon so that this difficult situation can be resolved and I can get back to competing. No parent should have to decide between their child or their career.

I remain optimistic that in the coming days Leo’s father and I can put aside any differences and take steps in the right direction to more effectively work as a team and agree on an arrangement for all three of us to travel and for me to compete but, more importantly to ensure that Leo has a consistent presence from both of his parents.

Ms Azarenka, The McKeague Family is the kindest most loving and caring group we ever met. There are always 2 sides to every situation and the truth reading these words put out there says so much about the person who wrote this. Victoria to involve the world in this way is tasteless and classless. Billy, Charlie, Lisa, Lynn and Chase McKeague are more loved and respected by everyone all around many parts of the world and to spew like this is shameful. Please do not do this to good people and an innocent baby. Please do not make this so public and misleading. Prayers for people come...Altro... Mi piace · Rispondi · 1 min

Sorry to hear that you and your family are going through these problems, I wish you good luck with it all, and I hope you all figure something out so you can play the US Open Tennis Championships <3

As a true parent ,you should always be there for your child, no matter what the circumstance, even a career ....My compliments for putting your family first Victoria Azarenka . Wish all the best , your fans will miss you on the courts but we truly understand ...🎾🎾🎾

Выдержки и Стойкости!!! К сожалению, в реальной жизни надо уметь держать удар не только на корте, но бороться за сына надо как никогда в игре ДО ПОСЛЕДНЕЙ КАПЛИ КРОВИ! Пусть возобладает здравый смысл у Вашего сожителя и не важно какой он национальности и из какой страны, и ВМЕСТЕ сможете растить Вашего ЧЕЛОВЕЧКА!!! ПОБЕДЫ ЕЩЁ ВПЕРЕДИ!!! Мы с Вами и ребёнок на этом жизненном этапе - ЭТО САМОЕ ГЛАВНОЕ!!!

Dear Victoria, we will miss you at the Open . I hope you cam work it out with Leo's father. But although you have the right to work and be a mom I think your child comes on the first place. We will " survive" without you. A child mentally not.

Seguís demostrando lo campeona que eres y ahora fuera de una cancha de tenis. Ser madre es una tarea nada sencilla y estas demostrando que estas dispuesta a pelear como lo hacías y lo harás dentro de un court. Porque un hijo no es un trofeo de disputa, es un ser que merece ver feliz y sus padres. Fuerza y como siempre nunca bajes los brazos.

Stay strong Vika!!! Things always have a way of working out!!!! You are doing the right thing by making Leo's world important. I hope that you and Leo's Dad work through everything to where both of you are there for him because that is important!!!! Take care of yourself keep your head up and have faith!!! Hopefully we your fans will see you on the courts sooner than you or us think!!!

You're a great mommy! You also did a fantastic job in Wimbledon. I was very impressed with how quickly you bounced back. I have four children and I decided to take a step back from playing professional vball tournaments to have a family. I'm still trying to recover after having four kids and trying to get back into volleyball shape. That's why I look up to your accomplishments. I support you in your decisions. It will just be hard not to see you on the court at this year's Open. 😊❤️ God Bless!

I have admired you as a player and woman for years, Vika, but now even more so. You will be missed, as it was so great to finally have you back, but you are definitely doing the right thing. I wish you and Leo all the best for a speedy and proper solution.

In every game you've faced you are still the toughest player I have ever known.its a very difficult situation of yours right now,but at least there is one Leo who's on your side that makes your day more and more courageous and strong mommy that is you Vika,,,be positive moving forward.your Son is the only one you need it right now...I still believe of your strong personality you can do it...God bless

I love you Vika & miss you terribly. Tennis is not the same without you. I do however totally understand. I have 2 boys and they are my world! They know there is nothing I would let stand in the way of me being a parent to them. That is my first & foremost passion, all else is after. I pray you will resolve your differences with Billie & return to us. Stay strong, you are the absolute best tennis player ever!!! But, fort & foremost, you are now a member m to a beautiful boy.

Humbling words that speak a lot of truth Victoria. Your commitment to your family is what makes you a role model to young (and older) people everywhere. Finding balance between one's work life and family is always a challenge, irrespective of your wealth or social standing. With time, your fans are sure you will find that happiness that allows you to be devoted to your family and still pursue your dreams. Best wishes from Australia 🇦🇺 🎾

Всё очень сложно, очень. Конечно адвокаты помогут, но разбитые сердца не склеишь,а ребёнка сформируется своя версия на будущую жизнь. Всем удачи и успехов. Everything is very complicated, very much. Of course, lawyers will help, but you can not stick your broken hearts, and your child will form his own version for a future life. All good luck and success.

Omg 😭😭😭 Sending you lots and lots of love to you sweetheart!! We fans are here to support you no matter what. Knowing how strong a competitor you are we are sure you will bounce back with a bang!! Hugssss 💝💝💝💓💓💓

Vika, your heart and focus is where it should be - tennis will always be there as well as your adoring fans who will support you and have your back when your family stuff is squared away. And just so happens I love single moms - let me know when you are taking dating applications - ha!

Thanks for sharing Vika. So many of us have been through similar situations..separation, divorce, inability to relocate and all the stresses and finances that accompany this . You are doing the right thing, baby Leo is your world now...and this all will pass in good time. Your attitude sounds excellent and I agree a mother should never have to choose between work and her child. Best of luck, much love, you are a great mom and great tennis player, love and hugs, Bonnie 👏👏🙏🙏😘😘🇨🇦👶👶👶👶👶🍼🍼🍼🍼❤️❤️

I've been there. Be amicable. That's all I can say. Tensions and emotions run high, but as parents you never lose sight of preserving the best interests for your children. The sooner you can be amicable with your spouse/partner/ex the sooner you'll be able to live the functional life that you both want to live. It's a process, it doesn't happen overnight. The only ones who benefit from the animosity are the lawyers. Good luck!

Well said and I hope you can soon work something out which is amicable to both of you. Most of your fans will still be here waiting for your successful return to the game you love. Thanks for the heads-up, keeping us informed about what's going on in your life, which is absolutely your business. 😎

Amazingly said. I hope that you can come to an amicable parenting care for Leo. Looking forward to hopefully seeing you in Australia at the Open. You are an amazing player with so much more to give, but family first! Sending big hugs and warm wishes from Melbourne Australia

Both mother and father are important for a child. You both have to act as adults, fighting for your careers but always putting your baby Leo at first pisition. The dialogue, comprehension and respect will wine. Do it for the love to your beautiful son. He belongs to you both. Much lucky for Leo, you and Leo's father! 💗💗💗

Good luck my sis, I am proud of you for what you want to do and achieve! Good Communication is the key in any relationship and I wish you get a positive results asap! Lots of love ❤️

Hi Vika, you have been my favorite player for as long as I can remember. I also have a 4 year old daughter and I totally understand what you are going through. My only hope is that you can find a way to continue your career and live a happy life with your son. As you said, I also believe we all deserve to be ale to pursue a career while having children, whatever their age. Hope to see you back soon (especially in Montreal next summer😉). All the love to you and your son. ❤️💕❤️

I had lost respect for you as a player over the last few years. As I read this I have gained respect for you as a person and a women. Balancing being a Mom, a relationship and a career is so difficult. I can't imagine trying to compete and deal with the issues you are being faced with. Your place is with your baby Leo. Keep training hard. I am again a fan and will be routing you on!!

Thank You for being so open and honest Vika. Follow your heart and I'm sure happiness will find you. Maybe it will be on the court, maybe not but stay true to yourself and your son.

I don't know what it's like to be a mother or let alone a professional tennis player but I do know one thing you are my number 1 tennis player, and Leo number 1 to. What ever you do we will support you and hopefully you'll get what you want at the end. And all the negative comments just brush off your shoulder and hope everything goes your way. Just a thought. The first time I saw you play was with Li Na and just by looking how u play I was like this girl is badass and I knew then that she was gonna do wonders. Good Luck
