Victoria Azarenka will miss the French Open because of a left foot injury.

"Unfortunately I will not be able to compete in Roland Garros this year. Working hard on my recovery & getting back on the court," the former world No.1 said Sunday on Twitter.

Azarenka last played on tour at Indian Wells in California on March 7.

The French Open begins May 25 in Paris.

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