Victoria Azarenka could be forced to miss the U.S. Open due to a custody battle with her child's father, according to a TMZ Sports report.

After McKeague filed custody documents in Los Angeles, where Azarenka, 28, has a residence, a judge informed the Belarus-born athlete she is unable to leave the state of California with her infant son as the custody dispute drags on.

She took her son Leo to the tournament, where McKeague looked after the child, but a judge has forbidden her from taking him to NY when the US Open kicks off on August 28. The gossip site also alleges the judge has refused to defer to Belarus' court, where Azarenka already has a valid custody order. The U.S. Open kicks off on August 28.

Azarenka joins defending men's champion Marin Cilic (adductor injury) and top-ranked men's player Andy Murray (hip injury) as big-name players who have withdrawn from the event.

The former No. 1-ranked player in the world last competed at Wimbledon, losing in the fourth round to Simona Halep.

Azarenka, 28, has played in just two tournaments since the 2016 French Open.

Azarenka and McKeauge welcomed their first child last December before calling it quits in July.
