    Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Sports Network) - Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from the Dubai Tennis Championships because of a right foot injury.

    Azarenka, coming off a title this past weekend at the Qatar Open, was the top seed in Dubai. She apparently hurt her foot while winning last week's tournament.

    Despite a 14-0 match record to start the season, a second straight Australian Open championship and a victory over Serena Williams in the Qatar final, Azarenka was supplanted by Williams as the top-ranked player in women's tennis on Monday.

    Williams is seeded second this week and, because of Azarenka's withdrawal, will retain the No. 1 ranking for at least another week.
