Azarenka sees Eastbourne as "perfect preparation for Wimbledon"

World number eight Victoria Azarenka is set to return from three months out with a foot problem at the Aegon International in Eastbourne.

The Belarusian, 24, has not played since March, when she attempted to come back at Indian Wells after a two-month absence.

She has accepted a wild card at Eastbourne, which begins on 14 June, as she builds her fitness for Wimbledon.

Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova and Caroline Wozniacki are also playing.

Azarenka said: "I've worked hard to rehabilitate my injury and to get fit for my return.

"The grass courts are world class, which will give me the best possible start to the second half of the season, and the perfect preparation for Wimbledon."
