Victoria Azarenka Celebrates Broncos’ Win On Court At Australian Open (Video)


Victoria Azarenka is just a little bit excited about the Denver Broncos moving on to Super Bowl 50.

The No. 16 tennis player beat Barbora Strykova in straight sets (6-2, 6-4) Sunday in the fourth round of the Australian Open. But during her on-court interview after the match, Azarenka was more concerned about the result of the AFC Championship Game between the Broncos and the New England Patriots.

“I was emotional the whole morning about it,” Azarenka said after the match, per USA TODAY. “I turned on TV while I was having breakfast and I just couldn’t look over there because, you know, I’m a huge sports fan, so when I’m a fan of somebody, I’m a diehard. I’ll get nervous, emotional and have absolutely no control, I go loco. I will scream. I will scream (at the) TV.”

Azarenka is a huge Peyton Manning fan, but she also shares an agent with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who will be the Broncos’ opponent in Super Bowl 50. So Azarenka, who’s been dabbing her way to the Australian Open quarterfinals, isn’t picking a winner.

“I’m sitting this one out,” Azarenka said. “Let the best team win. This was my dream final, to be honest, and so I can’t wait to actually see them both.”
