Azarenka Unsure Of Next Event With Custody Dispute Affecting Travel.

In the Miami Open, Victoria Azarenka lost in the semifinals. This is her second tournament of 2018.

When we inquired about her less number of matches in this season, Victoria Azarenka indicates that her custody dispute is restricting her travel still, and she is so much in trouble because of this that she does not know what will be her next tournament appearance. “When I have some news to share, I will be ready to share them,” she told the press following her semifinal in Miami.

Azarenka Break up

Victoria Azarenka is no longer in relationship with Stefan Gordy, the singer from USA. The couple has broken up recently after reaching the conclusion that they don’t have enough time for each other.

Both Azarenka and Gordy are the renowned names in their own fields and thus, it’s obvious that they have hectic schedules. Despite that, they tried hard to save their relationship, but, eventually, both of them felt that it was virtually impossible to carry it on.

Talking to the reporters the other day, Gordy said, “Neither of us wanted to split, but, the fact is that we both are at a very important stage of our careers. We have to devote a lot of time to our respective professions and in such situation, the best possible thing is the breakup.”

Gordy would be doing shows in various parts of Europe over the next month, while, Azarenka would be busy playing hard court tournaments in her bid to get ready for the US Open.

Azarenka has fallen down in the world rankings a little bit in the recent times and the injuries have a lot to do with that. Yes, her form has also not been the greatest, but, she would not have slipped down so much (to no. 10) if she had stayed fit.

It’s not so long back when the Belarusian was the no. 1 player in the world. She had been absolutely fantastic in the 2012 and 2013 Season winning Australian Open successively and also reaching the semi final and final rounds of the other slams.

But, during the ongoing season, Azarenka has been a little unlucky with her fitness. However, the last quarter of the season is still remaining and she has every chance to improve her ranking before the season ends.

Djokovic Will Feature In Boodles

Novak Djokovic, the no. 2 player in the world, will get prepared for the Wimbledon Championships by featuring in an exhibition tournament named as Boodles Tennis Challenge. It will be organized at Stoke Park and all the players participating in it will get the opportunity to play at least 3 games.

Some other renowned players who are taking part in that tournament are John Isner, Jack Sock (Both USA), Kevin Anderson (South Africa), Ernests Gulbis (Latvia), Milos Raonic (Canada) and Fabio Fognini (Italy).

Almost all the players who are at the top positions in the World rankings have taken part in the ATP tournaments in their bids to get ready for the third Grand Slam of the year, but, Djokovic who was horribly frustrated after suffering yet another defeat against Rafael Nadal in the French Open decided not to do so.

He got himself freshened by spending some quality time with his buddies and now, he is all set to go again.

Although Boodles Challenge is only an exhibition tournament, the name of the players mentioned above clearly suggests that the competition is going to be tough there and Djokovic would be happy about that. He would want to play hard and tight so that his preparation is well come the Wimbledon.

In the Wimbledon Championships, Djokovic would again have the opportunity to replace Rafael Nadal at the first position in the world rankings.

The Serb had the similar opportunity at Roland Garros as well, but, he wasted that by losing to the Spaniard in the final there. Had he clinched that final, he would have been the world no. 1 by now.

The Wimbledon Championships this year will start from the 23rd of June and will go on till the 6th of July.


Victoria Azarenka will lock horns with the American player Lauren Davis in the second round match of the ongoing BNP Paribas Open.

The 24 years old Belarusian international who has not been supremely fit this season had been awarded a bye in the opening round because of her world ranking. So, the match against Davis will be her first match in the competition.

Azarenka has participated in just a couple of events in 2014. The first one was the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in which she performed quite well and made it to the title round only to get beaten by the world no. 1 Serena Williams.

Then she went into the Australian Open and looked in pretty good rhythm there as well, but, to the surprise of everybody, she lost in the final 8 round and got knocked out.

Thereafter, she got hit by foot injury which didn’t let her take part in any of the tournaments for about a month or so. There were speculations that she might not come to Indian Wells either, but, fortunately for her, that injury got healed up in time and she made her way to USA for this tournament.

Azarenka’s overall record at Indian Wells is decent, but, not overly impressive. Out of her 6 attempts, she has managed to win the trophy here only once. That’s certainly not good enough for a player of her calibre.

While talking to the reporters ahead of the match against Davis, Azarenka looked quite excited. She said, “I was not sure initially if I would be able to get fit for this tournament. I was just hoping for the best and thankfully, the recovery went well.”

Azarenka is currently at the 4th position in the world rankings.


Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams are the world’s two best female tennis players at the moment and they are arch rivals. Whenever they play against each other, the spectators get to see terrific tussle.

Azarenka believes that she has been benefitted by the rivalry between herself and Serena. According to her, it’s something which has helped her become an improved player.

Azarenka’s chances of playing against Serena in the near future are pretty good. Both these players are going to take part in the upcoming Brisbane International Tennis tournament and if both of them make it to the title round there, they will be up against each other.

There have been 16 matches played between Azarenka and Serena so far out of which the Belarusian player has managed to win just 3 so far.

Talking to the reporters yesterday about the rivalry between herself and Serena, Azarenka said, “These kinds of rivalries help you improve to be honest. When you face a player of the calibre of Serena, you get to know about your weaknesses.”

“I really love playing against her. It’s always challenging to walk out there and take her on, but, it’s enjoyable too.”

“You want to beat top class players because that’s what gives you satisfaction. You put so much effort during the training sessions just to do that.”

During the last season too, Azarenka was scheduled to face Serena in the semi final round in Brisbane, but, she withdrew herself from that game due to some reason. Now, this time around, it is widely expected that both the players would reach the final and take on each other. If that happens, it will be a cracker of a game.

Azarenka’s first match in the Brisbane International Tennis tournament is against Casey Dellacqua of Australia.


There are some players who are just different from others and there is a term for them ‘Champions’. They are called so because they tend to come up with something special when the conditions are not quite favourable to them.

Serena Williams is one of the best of all times because of what she did on Sunday in the US Open final.  Her form wasn’t quite up there and she was not being able to make the most of the opportunities. She was clearly feeling the heat for the first time in the competition, but, the manner in which she shrugged that off was just remarkable. She battled her way through and eventually came on top to show why she is the best in the business.

Victoria Azarenka who was Serena’s opponent in that final admitted later on that Serena knows the art of winning perfectly well.

Azarenka said, “She is a legend. She has the idea how to do it time and again.”

“In such big games, you need to seize the vital moments and that’s what she did today. She was more aggressive and she lifted her game at the right time.”

“I tried my best and that’s what you can do. I am going from here with my head high.”

“It’s important to take positives out of such matches. It was always going to be difficult as I was facing a player like Serena and that too when she is at her peak. But, I gave her a good fight and that’s a real positive for me.”

The final match between Serena and Azarenka went on for 2 hours and 45 minutes and Serena eventually won it in three sets by 7-5, 6-7(1), 6-1. This was the 5th time that Serena won the US Open singles title.
