She’s the highest ranked tennis player still competing for the French Open singles title. Victoria Azarenka is trying to win her first grand slam championship.

She’s made it into the quarter-finals and will play Li Na of China next. Victoria was born in Belarus, but moved to Arizona to train.

She’s ranked number four in the world – which makes her  the highest ranked Belarusian in WTA history. The aggressive baseliner is hopeful that 2011 will be her year in Paris.

    Hi Vika
    Is there any specific area of your game you want to improve? Or just general fine tuning?

    Did you consciously set out to imitate Sharapova's scream or is at unconscious thing?

    Hi Victoria,

    Great games at the Australian Open so far, I'm writing from Sydney Australia. I was curious about the noise you make when you hit the ball on the court, how did that begin and is that something you were taught or came naturally? I also noticed in today's match that for some games, it just disappeared completely and wondered why that is?

    Good luck for your 2011 season.

    Hi Vika,

    Being from a small country myself, how does it feel to represent your country and fellow citizens and know you are carrying the weight of the entire country on your shoulders and having all that support in each tournament you compete in?

    So far you are doing a tremendous job!

    Cheers.
