Azarenka Discusses Her No.1 Fan

Victoria Azarenka's other half, the pop star Redfoo, is hard to miss, and he could be about to become even more visible within the tennis world.

Azarenka Discusses Her No.1 Fan

For the most part, the player's box is a fairly predictable place. However, for Victoria Azarenka the coterie of agents, coaches and family has been given an air of unpredictability in recent times.

Redfoo, one half of the band LMFAO and Azarenka's boyfriend of the past year or so, it would be fair to say is an unconventional character in the tennis landscape. While most other halves generally blend into the surroundings, it is hard to miss Redfoo and his larger-than-life personality and fashion sense.

"I don't think you can miss him," Azarenka said when asked about her number one fan during the Australian Open. "It's tough, because they have been showing him on TV more than probably they were showing somebody else. He's very, very visible."

And he could soon become even more visible.

After entering the pre-qualifying competition last year, Redfoo is campaigning for a wildcard to this year's US Open and has enlisted the help of his better half and several other big names to get his game up to scratch.

"His backhand is pretty bad, but his forehand is much better," Azarenka added. "I think Mats Wilander was giving him some tips on the backhand; Novak Djokovic was giving him some tips; everyone is giving him tips!

"He comes up with a different shot every time, you know - it's a helicopter swing - then it's out of space. I don't know. He's just ridiculous!"

While he irons out the kinks in his game ahead of Flushing Meadows, the singer will be concentrating on his day job, according to Azarenka.

"I think he's hoping for the wildcard. I don't know if he's going to get it. He actually plays tennis better now than when he was trying to qualify. He's been working hard on his game.

"But he's so into his projects right now that I think he's more focused on that."
