Victoria Azarenka Has a Back Injury? Really?

Victoria Azarenka has pulled out of the Fed Cup tie against the United States with a lower back injury. Azarenka stated:

It has been a while and I have been trying to take [the injury] day by day. I had the pain since the Australian Open and was hoping to recover, but did not have enough time with all the flying I did.

A lower back injury is very hard to prove even from a medical stand point, thus Im not too sure if its an injury or just a bit of a niggle which means she can have another week to relax a bit after her Australian Open win.

Really indeed! This “injury” allowed her to avoid possibly playing Serena and Venus, and be 16 and 0. I’m ready for a new number 1 – this one is strutting too much, is still a head case, and is “injured” way too much.

Please remember that Serena gets “injured” all the time!
