Azarenka, whose head-to-head record against Williams is still a lopsided 3-13, said of her latest schooling: “I was over it the next day.”
“I have a 24-hour rule, win or lose. You have to get up and keep going.”
About her latest video
Preparing for Tokyo, Azarenka showed her playful side with a parody of American pop diva Miley Cyrus’s controversial MTV Video Music Awards performance on her Instagram account. “I just thought it was a really funny video to do,” she said of her effort at “twerking.”
“I’m never afraid to show my personality. I’m an entertainer myself. I was a little shy before. Now I’m out of that zone I just want to show my world with my fans.”
Go back to being shy.
Tough match ahead with Venus.
My fav has won 24 Slams, I´m always right!
Read the Bible.
Quiet. 24 SLAMS.
I couldn't bring myself to watch it yet because I'm afraid it'll make me cringe.
Really tough first round for Vika. Needs to be focused from the get-go.
On another note, there are so many extremely interesting match-ups in this tournament but they start at the worst possible times for Europeans.
Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
Apparently Venus name apparently still instills fear with people here. I think it's a very easy first round for Vika, 7 times champion doesn't count much if you're 33, ill with no real success for a very long time. Someone like Cornet would be a tougher opponent.
Venus' highest ranked victim this year is Flipkens at #14, why again are people (I went to GM ugh for a short time) thinking Venus is going to win? I'm not understanding this, as if Vika has declined that badly after the USO.
And it wasn't just that Venus was hitting off the ground really well, she actually served and moved the best I've seen from her in years. I just think if she plays like that a tough match can be expected.
That was very disappointing . After watching the match the loss itself isn't a big deal since she was clearly unwell, it's just too bad it's yet another opportunity wasted . I just hope she recovers in time for Beijing!! It's also rather odd she didn't withdraw.
So anticlimactic too - I've been looking forward to Tokyo ever since the US Open and this is what the what was for .
