Former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka says she'll miss clay-court tournaments at Madrid and Rome next month, putting into question whether she'll enter the French Open.

Azarenka has been dealing with a left foot injury this season and last played on tour at Indian Wells, Calif., on March 7.

In a posting on her Twitter feed Saturday, Azarenka wrote: ''Just wanted to give everyone an update on my recovery. Working hard to get fit again. Will be in touch soon...''

 

 

The posting included a link to a video of Azarenka saying, ''Hey, everybody, unfortunately I won't be competing in Madrid and Rome this year.''

Play starts in Madrid on May 3, and in Rome on May 12. The year's second Grand Slam tournament starts in Paris on May 25.

Azarenka is a two-time Australian Open champion and a two-time U.S. Open runner-up.

She is currently ranked No. 4.
