After seeing her 26-match winning streak come to an end with a 6-3, 6-3 loss to Marion Bartoli last night at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, Victoria Azarenka said she will take an extensive break, possibly until the second week of May, in Madrid. Azarenka is entered in Stuttgart, which begins April 23, along with the rest of the Top 10, but it’s unclear whether she will participate.

"I'm going to rest. I don't know," she told reporters. "Probably my next tournament is gonna be Madrid or something like that. I'll have a good preparation for my clay season, and we'll see the next tournament."
