Former World No.1 and two time Australian Open Champion Victoria Azarenka is rather critical about herself and the Belarusian recently spoke about her three set win over Kateryna Bondarenko. "It's a really challenging time for me and my game right now," Azarenka said in an on-court interview after the match. "You can see with my game, there's a lot of ups and downs.
The important thing is that I'm here, I'm fighting hard, and I try to do my best. That's all I can ask of myself.” Later in the press conference, she said, “For the 1st time in a while I really played the match.
I didn’t think oh I missed a bad shot. I just played the next point. It’s a small step forward & I have to build from it. I have to let it go a bit. I’m too much into trying to do too well & that doesn’t help." “Disappointing for the most part.
It’s not surprising if you knew the things I’ve gone through. I expect so much of myself. I’m very demanding of myself and I’m very hard on myself and I think that’s not helping me progress, being hard on myself." “Obviously I didn’t play my best tennis & I could do things better.
Really, all the shots are there, it just needs to come together because there’s nowhere on the tennis court where I cannot put the ball where I want to." She also spoke about her net opponent Garbine Muguruza, "She's a great player, she's improved a lot in the last few years, winning two Grand Slams.” ALSO READ 'If Mirka doesn't want to travel, my career is over' - Roger Federer
