London, Jun 26 (EFE).- Belarusian Victoria Azarenka, the No. 2 seed, pulled out of Wimbledon Wednesday just minutes prior to her second-round match due to an injured right knee.
Azarenka had been scheduled to take on Italy's Flavia Pennetta in the first match on Centre Court.
The Belarusian, winner of the last two Australian Opens and semifinalist at Wimbledon in 2011 and 2012, defeated Portuguese world No. 106 Maria Joao Koehler 6-1, 6-2 in first-round action on Monday.
