Azarenka wins on return to 'danger' court
Belarus's Victoria Azarenka celebrates winning her women's singles first round match against Croatia's Mirjana Lucic-Baroni on day one of the Wimbledon Championships at The All England Tennis Club in southwest London, on June 23, 2014 - by Carl Court
Azarenka, the eighth seed, won 6-3, 7-5 against Croatia's Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, who was a semi-finalist back in 1999, on Court One.
That was the same arena where she hurt her right knee in a nasty fall in the first round 12 months ago, an injury which sparked her withdrawal from the next round.
It was a defeat which led to Azarenka angrily condemning the All England Club courts as dangerous.
This year, the former Australian Open champion has been plagued by a left foot injury which kept her off tour from Indian Wells in March to Eastbourne last week where she lost her opener to Camila Giorgi.
Azarenka now goes on to face Serbia's Bojana Jovanovski.
