Victoria Azarenka made her allegiance to Paris Saint-Germain at the start of the 2023 Australian Open. Nevertheless, after beating Jessica Pegula 6-4, 6-1 on Tuesday night to return to the semifinals at Melbourne Park, Azarenka’s love for PSG was a topic once again.
Azarenka was asked whether she was more impressed with the capital club’s form in their 7-0 Coupe de France Round 32 victory over Pays de Cassel, with five goals from Kylian Mbappe, or her performance that saw her knockoff the WTA No. 3 ranked player in the world.
While the tennis star loves PSG, she had to go with how she performed.
“I mean, five [goals] for [Kylian] Mbappe is pretty remarkable, but they didn’t play that great of a team, so I’ll take mine,” Azarenka told reporters.
