Victoria Azarenka tells boyfriend Redfoo her engagement ring better be bigger than Wozniacki’s

Victoria Azarenka defeated Sloane Stephens in straight sets in the fourth round of the Australian Open on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament. Though her easy win was quite impressive, it’s not what we want to focus on.

After her match, Vika did an interview with 7 Sports that was televised on ESPN. Azarenka talked about how she spent time in Australia prior to the tournament with boyfriend Redfoo and enjoyed it. She talked about hanging out by Bondi Beach, seeing the surfers, and loving the atmosphere and energy. Interviewer Rennae Stubbs said it seemed like Azarenka wanted to purchase a home in the area, and Vika mentioned that Redfoo, who has been in Australia serving as a judge on a reality TV show in the country, talked about that. That’s when Stubbs put the pressure on the couple.

Stubbs held up Azarenka’s left hand, tapped Vika’s ring finger and said to Redfoo, “I see something’s missing,” implying that they need to be married before they buy a home together.

That drew laughs from Vika, Redfoo and the crowd, but it led to a great quote from Azarenka.

“It better be bigger than [Caroline Wozniacki's],” she said.

Wozniacki’s ring, given to her by fiance Rory McIlroy, is 8 carats. That’s a lot to compete with, Redfoo!

Victoria Azarenka cameos as sexy flight attendant in new Redfoo music video

Victoria Azarenka struts her stuff in a cameo appearance in boyfriend Redfoo’s latest music video, which was released on Saturday.

The video is for a song called “Let’s Get Ridiculous,” and it actually plays out more like a short movie than a music video. Redfoo acts as an outlaw throughout the video and is pursued by some clumsy cops. The song is catchy and the video is highly entertaining. Vika’s cameo comes up before the song starts. She plays the role of a flight attendant on the plane as Redfoo is being deported for being “too ridiculous.”

The world’s No. 2 tennis player is wearing a leopard dress off one shoulder, gets an eyebrow raise from Redfoo, and turns the heads of Redfoo and one of the agents. Not a bad role for her in that music video.

Vika and Redfoo have been boyfriend-girlfriend for over a year. Redfoo has a tennis playing background and was first seen supporting Azarenka at last year’s US Open. He intimated that they were having relationship problems over the summer, but that all seems to have been worked out. Redfoo supported Vika throughout this year’s US Open despite being in Australia to serve as a judge on “The X Factor.” And now she’s appeared in one of his music videos.

Victoria Azarenka calls Serena Williams best ever, says she is closing the gap

Victoria Azarenka Serena WilliamsPrior to losing to Venus Williams at the Toray Pan Pacific Open this week, Victoria Azarenka was speaking confidently about her game.

In an interview with AFP before the tournament began, Azarenka called Serena Williams the best player ever, though she clarified that she can only judge players from her era when making such a declaration. She also said that despite losing to Serena in the finals of the US Open, she is closing the gap on the American superstar.

“Serena is playing the best tennis of her life and so am I,” Azarenka told AFP.

“It’s been really noticeable the gap from last year we have in the matches has minimised. I’ve beaten her twice this year. No one else has done that.

“It’s just exciting to be in the era of somebody and competing with somebody who is considered the best ever and being their toughest opponent.”

Azarenka probably is Serena’s best competition right now, though Sloane Stephens beat Williams too and will surpass her eventually. And we all know where Maria Sharapova falls in this discussion.

Serena has only lost four times this year, with two of the losses coming to Azarenka. One win came in Qatar early in the year, and the other was in Cincinnati before the US Open. Both wins were in the finals, so that is definitely a strong sign as Azarenka says.

Azarenka is 3-13 against Williams all time and 0-8 against her in grand slams. But she might be right that she is closing the gap; she went 2-3 against her this year after going 1-10 previously. The big difference is she needs to finally beat Serena in a grand slam. Now, if she could only figure out how to beat Venus …

Redfoo supports girlfriend Victoria Azarenka despite not being at US Open

Redfoo and Victoria Azarenka have been separated by continents for a portion of the summer, but that hasn’t kept the musician from supporting his tennis playing girlfriend, and vice-versa.

Redfoo has been in Australia serving as a judge on “The X Factor.” He hinted during an episode in late July that he and Azarenka were having relationship problems, but the two appear to have overcome some of the issues.

Just after that episode aired, it was Vika’s birthday, and Redfoo celebrated with his girlfriend:

Redfoo and Victoria Azarenka having relationship problems?

Redfoo is serving as a judge on season five of Australia’s “The X Factor,” and the musician hinted on the show that he and girlfriend Victoria Azarenka are having relationship problems.
Redfoo X Factor
Redfoo (aka Stefan Kendal Gordy), who became famous through his music group LMFAO, was moved to tears by a stellar performance from 14-year-old Jai Waetford on Monday’s season premier. Waetford sang a song he wrote about relationships called “Don’t Let Me Go.”

The song’s lyrics included lines such as “my life is nothing without you” and “please don’t leave me now.” The song led Redfoo to open up about his personal life.

“I’m going through something right now in a relationship. And those lyrics made me cry,” Redfoo admitted while praising Waetford’s performance.

“I wish I could show this to her now.”

Though Redfoo did not elaborate, it’s easy to assume he was talking about Azarenka. The two have been dating since at least September 2012, and the LMFAO star has been a regular in the stands for many of his girlfriend’s matches, including Wimbledon last month. The two even attended the ESPYs a few weeks ago.

Victoria Azarenka took controversial medical timeout because she got nervous

victoria azarenka trainer

Victoria Azarenka beat Sloane Stephens in the semifinals of the Australian Open on Thursday in Melbourne, but she used some highly questionable tactics in the process.

Azarenka blew five match points while she was serving up 5-3 in the second set against Stephens. During the side change, Azarenka called the trainer and doctor over and pointed at her chest a few times. Not only was she treated, but she even left the court and didn’t return until several minutes later. Stephens, who had just broken serve and had some momentum, was forced to sit and wait until Azarenka was ready to continue.

Stephens was wearing Azarenka down, fought off five match points, and outlasted Azarenka in a game that took over 12 minutes. But Azarenaka’s timeout allowed her to recover and refocus, and she broke Stephens to win the match 6-1, 6-4.

When asked after the match about her medical problems, Azarenka said she took the break because she was overcome by nerves and nearly had a panic attack.

“I almost did the choke of the year,” Azarenka said. “At 5-3, having so many chances, [I] couldn’t close it out. I’m glad I could turn it around. I just felt a little bit overwhelmed realizing that I’m one step away from the final. Nerves got into me for sure.”

Azarenka was asked if she was happy with her performance.
