Indian Wells - A hobbled Victoria Azarenka bowed out of the second round of the Indian Wells ATP Masters and WTA hardcourt tournament on Friday, falling in straight sets to American Lauren Davis.

The third-seeded Belarussian was hindered by a painful left foot injury, delivering a dozen double-faults in a 6-0, 7-6 (7/2) loss to the 66th-ranked Davis.

Azarenka was disappointed, but not surprised since she had returned to practice less than a week before the tournament after spending three weeks with a walking boot on her ailing foot.

Davis, 20, notched her first career victory over a top-10 player in five opportunities.
