Bidding for her fourth Miami Open title, the two time Grand Slam champion Victoria Azarenka was delighted after she knew her 4-year-old son’s wish.
On 19th December 2016, Azarenka gave birth to his son, who was later named Leo. Former World No.1 from Belarus recently uploaded a video clip on her Twitter page with a caption.
“Leo has decided to skip this year’s Miami Open to prepare the best for the upcoming clay season,” She wrote. Afterwards, she has been receiving funny comments over this post.
“I Want To Be Like Mama”, says Azarenka’s Beautiful Son, Leo
The 31-year-old Manhattan Beach resident replied, “He does not want to hit a backhand at all. I have to bribe him with things to hit backhands. It’s really sad because I tell him he actually hits it so well.”
Azarenka continued, “I say, ‘Why don’t you want to hit backhand? Your mom has a really good backhand. Genetically you will have a good backhand.”
2020 US Open runner-up also emphasised that her husband asked her son what he wants to be in the future. Her son responded he wants to be like his mother.
“Tennis, he loves. His dad was asking him, ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’’ “He said, ‘I want to be like mama.’ For me, that was very heartwarming. As long as he loves playing, likes having fun, that’s the most important for me,” Belarusian added.
However, No.14 seed Victoria Azarenka will lock horns with German Laura Siegemund in her opening round match at the Miami Open 2021. She will have a chance to meet three-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber in the round of 32.
