This is going to read like an extremely sexist ad-lib, but it’s true: World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka had to cancel a scheduled tennis match in Brisbane against Serena Williams because she suffered an injury during a botched pedicure. My first reaction is, my god they can actually botch pedicures? Is nothing safe in this world anymore?
Azarenka said that because of a bad pedicure, her toe became badly infected, and she couldn’t risk further bodily harm by playing Williams in the Brisbane International semifinal. The top-ranked Azarenka said that she’s been battling the injury for 10 days and would rather sit out this match than risk having to possibly miss the Australian Open. Her opponent, Serena Williams, fully supports Azarenka’s decision to skip the match in an effort to be ready for the first leg of a potential Grand Slam year.
