Belarusian tennis player Victoria Azarenka will play at the tournament in American Indian Wells.

The competitions will be held from 7 to 18 March. The Belarusian tennis player has not competed in official tournaments since July 2017, when the lawsuit between her and her child's father began. In total, four Belarusians will play in Indian Wells.

In addition to Azarenka other Belarusian tennis players will take part in it: Aryna Sabalenka, Aliaksandra Sasnovich and Vera Lapko. The latter will begin the tournament from qualification stage.

Azarenka was drawn against US Heather Watson in round 1, Sasnovich will take on Poland's Magda Linette, while Sabalenka will encounter Varvara Lepchenko from the USA.

Azarenka earlier said that she was going to return to tennis in 2018. Last week she tweeted that she would return to professional tennis in March 2018.
