Victoria Azarenka dances her way to the quarters with a win over US Varvara Lepchenko in straight sets 6-3, 6-4. Azarenka now faces Romanian Simona Halep who battled her way to the quarters with a hard fought win over German Sabine Lisicki in three sets 7-6, 5-7, 2-6.
Victoria Azarenka played with tape around her arms because of a possible allergic reaction due to her clothing.
“I just had like a blister kind of rubbing against my skin or my material. It’s just like burning sensation when I touch it,” she explained.
“So I just put the tape around so it doesn’t bother me.
“I did it yesterday. I saw this group of my fans. They post all the pictures and stuff, and they were freaking, like, ‘What happened to her arms? What is it? What is going on?’
“You know, I had an opportunity to explain this today, and I hope they are not going be too worried, or anybody else.”
Victoria Azarenka feels sympathy for Eugenie Bouchard
Eugenie Bouchard hit her head after a slip in the locker room and was forced to withdraw from the 2015 US Open. 26 year old Victoria Azarenka sympathized with Bouchard and was reminded of her withdrawal at the Australian Open 2010 where she collapsed on court.
“It’s unfortunate, especially, she’s been coming back and playing quite solid. But there is not much you can do,” said Victoria Azarenka.
The Victoria Azarenka dances
The official US Open Vine gave us a clear shot where Victoria Azarenka dances after her well deserved victory over Varvara Lepchenko. We at TSF are wondering three things:
1. Is this going to be a regular thing?
2. When is the dance off with Andrea Petkovic?
3. And what about a Gael Monfils dance off?
