Azarenka in custody fight, to miss Open

NEW YORK • Two-time tennis Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from next week's US Open, as she is not allowed to take her baby son out of California amid a custody battle with her former partner.

The 28-year-old from Belarus returned to action in June, after the birth of her son Leo last December, and had been hopeful that legal arrangements could be worked out to allow her to compete in New York.
