Victoria Azarenka: The Pictures You Need to See

Victoria Azarenka has a reputation. She's pretty hardcore. Other adjectives include intense, focused, prone-to-yelling on the court. The former world No. 1 was a lot of things to a lot of people for a very long time. She isn't anymore. In fact, she's learned to chill out. And it's helping her dominate at this year's Australian Open. Azarenka, 26, actually took a vacation in the fall of 2015, just weeks before she started to train for the Open. It was fun. It was relaxing. It was rejuvenating. Now, with the Australian Open quarterfinals ahead of her, Azarenka is taking what she learned on vacation and bringing it to the game she's been a part of for so long. She has won every set she's played at the Australian Open and lost only 11 games in four matches. As far as Azarenka is concerned, this is her moment and she's intent on seizing it.
