Azarenka misses out on Australian Open seeding

Azarenka dropped to 35th in the WTA rankings at the end of 2014 after an injury-hit year, and she has since fallen to 41st after struggling in the opening weeks of the 2015 campaign.

As a result, despite having a 32-7 record at the competition and having twice made the quarter-finals, the 25-year-old is not seeded at Melbourne Park.

The seeds in both the men and women's draws reflect the current rankings, with Novak Djokovic the top seed, followed by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and defending champion Stan Wawrinka.

In the women's draw, Serena Williams is the top seed, with Maria Sharapova seeded second and Simona Halep third.
