Victoria Azarenka 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
On 31 July 1989, Azarenka was born in Minsk, Byelorussian SSR, Soviet Union to Alla and Fyodor Azarenka in a middle-class family. She has an elder brother Max.
Her tennis idol is German former player Steffi Graf. In an interview, Azarenka stated: “Graf’s Calendar Golden Slam in 1988 is my biggest motivation.”
At age 15, Azarenka moved full-time to Scottsdale, Arizona, United States, from Minsk, Belarus, to train and live. In this she was aided by National Hockey League goalie Nikolai Khabibulin and his wife, who is a friend of Azarenka’s mother.
In 2012, she became registered in Monaco but in August 2013 she purchased a large ocean-overlooking house as her principal residence where she lives in Manhattan Beach, California.
Azarenka is fluent in Belarusian, Russian, and English, and has some fluency in French and Ukrainian.
Azarenka dated American musician Redfoo between late 2012 and early 2014. Azarenka has spoken openly about her experience of depression during her injury-induced absence from professional tennis in 2014.
Azarenka and former boyfriend Billy McKeague, have one son, Leo, born 19 December 2016. Immediately after 2017 Wimbledon they split and became involved in a custody case for their son in Los Angeles, which began in August 2017.
Azarenka then withdrew from the remaining 2017 tournaments.
In January 2018 a tabloid news website reported that Azarenka had won an early round of the U.S. custody proceedings where a Los Angeles County judge ruled that the custody case of McKeague and Azarenka’s U.S. born son should not take place in Los Angeles County, but in Belarus.
In April 2018 Azarenka returned to the tour, competing in Europe in the Madrid Open, the Italian Open, and later the French Open.
In December 2018, California Courts of Appeal ruled that Los Angeles County Superior Court has jurisdiction over their child custody case, overturning the initial Los Angeles County Superior Court Belarus jurisdiction decision.
