Tennis: Azarenka's love affair with New York continues
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Victoria Azarenka's love affair with New York's hardcourts is starting to get serious.
The Belarusian is so smitten with Flushing Meadows that she now thinks of them as an old lover.
"I would say it's my husband," she said on Thursday after her 6-3 6-1 win over Canada's Aleksandra Wozniak.
"Because we have been together for a long time (we) got really comfortable with each other. Yeah, it's my husband." Azarenka's affection for hardcourts, the sport's most physically demanding surface, appears mutual.
