One of the most high-profile love games in tennis is no more, or is taking a break, it seems. Victoria Azarenka, sidelined with injury for months, and LMFAO singer-turned-solo artist Redfoo have called a timeout in their relationship, which is two years young, according to Australia's Daily Telegraph. He intends to make music in Australia (two words: disco flavor), where he is a judge on the Aussie version of The X Factor TV show, and she is returning to the WTA tour this week at the Eastbourne grass-court event.

With Azarenka away from the sport, the pair was spotted in mid-April wearing matching chunky glasses at an event in Sydney that featured a performance by Black Eyed Peas member apl.de.ap and appearances by some of his BEP members. Redfoo, born Stefan Gordy, is 38, and Azarenka is 24. Obviously they're at different stages of their lives and careers, but it seems they might not be saying "never again."

Redfoo also had this about Azarenka's life on the tennis court: “She has an amazing career and opportunity to be the next greatest women’s tennis player ever. If Serena [Williams] is the greatest, I think she has the talent and the work ethic to be the next best."

Thoughts on the couple's breakup?
