Victoria Azarenka wins first stage of legal battle for son's custody

Victoria Azarenka is finally seeing the light out of the tunnel. The former world No. 1 reportedly won her legal battle against her former boyfriend Billy McKeague for their one year and one-month-old son Leo.

McKeague filed paternity papers in California around July, and until now none of the parents could take the child out of California. That's why Azarenka didn't play US Open and Australian Open, she would have gone there alone. Azarenka, who was born in Minsk, said the case belongs in Belarus, as she had won the first stage of the process there, which was confirmed now by the California judge, as reported by TMZ Sports. The judge fully explained the reasons for this decision in a 65-page document, and now Azarenka plans to go to Belarus as soon as possible. However, it seems she is available to make her ex-see Leo in the United States so that the son can grow up not only with her mother but, partially, also spend time with father.
