Victoria Azarenka Seeks Respectful Silence From Spectators
What she said:
“I would love people to be a bit more respectful and turn off their cell phones and just come and watch tennis and respect that players are doing their job.”
Belarussian World No. 4, Victoria Azarenka, is turned off by noisy spectators and their mobile phones during her second round victory over Slovakia’s Polona Hercog at the China Open in Beijing.
Azarenka, along with Maria Sharapova, is considered one of the worst offenders when it comes to grunting and shrieking on court among women tennis divas.
What she really meant:
“You should put those cell phones in silent mode and just take pictures or videos of me. Let me take care of the decibel levels. That’s my job, isn’t it? Isn’t that what you turn up for? Grunty Azarenka!”
What she definitely didn’t:
“Now, if I could just discover my ‘silent mode‘.”
