Second seed Victoria Azarenka called on Wimbledon organizers to examine the state of the courts after joining a growing list of players to withdraw from the grasscourt grand slam because of injury on Wednesday.

The Belarussian took a bad fall in her first-round match on Monday on what she called a slippery Court One and her knee failed to recover in time for Wednesday's match against Flavia Pennetta as she became one of eight players to pull out so far.
