Azarenka may miss US Open due to custody battle

Victoria Azarenka

A nasty custody battle over her 8-month-old son forced former Western & Southern Open tennis champion Victoria Azarenka to drop out of this month's tournament, according to media reports.

Billy McKeague, the baby's father, with whom Victoria Azarenka parted last month, filed custody papers in Los Angeles. It is expected that the hearings will be extended through October, which means that Victoria Azarenka will have to miss the US Open in NY scheduled for 28 August-10 September or agree to stay apart with her son during the tournament.

Azerenka's attorney Laura Wasser also told the judge her client has a custody order from Belarus, where she, McKeague and Leo are residents. Azarenka is one of the favourites for the US Open but it looks like she might be in danger of missing out the last Grand Slam of the year. She is now ranked No. 203, though she only returned to tennis in June after taking extensive time off to give birth to her son.

Cowen and Company Reaffirms Buy Rating for Precision Drilling Corporation (PDS)
Systematic Financial Management LP raised its stake in shares of Precision Drilling Corporation by 7.7% in the first quarter. Canaccord Genuity lowered their price target on Precision Drilling from C$6.50 to C$4.75 in a report on Tuesday, July 11th.

Per Briggs, Azarenka brought her son with her to Wimbledon and McKeague watched him while she played, but Azarenka and McKeague broke up shortly after the event.

Azarenka, 28, pulled out of the Cincinnati Open on Friday, citing a "family matter".
