Azarenka last played at Roland Garros, retiring in the first round due to a knee injury.
Less than two months later, she announced that she was pregnant and expecting her first child late in 2016.
Azarenka was recently interviewed by Tennis Channel and although she said she was confident of making a strong return to the sport, she had not given her comeback a date.
