Australian Open finalist commented on Azarenka’s behavior
German Anke Huber, a former fourth-ranked player of the 1996 Australian Open finalist, commented on the behavior of Belarusian tennis player Victoria Azarenka, who in March did not finish her third round match against Czech Linda Fruhvirtova at the WTA-1000 tournament in Miami (USA).
The first set went 6-2 in favor of the Czech tennis player, and in the second set Azarenka left the court with the score 0-3. The Belarusian athlete would not explain the reason. Later she said she’d refused to continue the match due to personal problems. Victoria also said that she shouldn’t have entered the court at all.
“You shouldn’t criticize her too much for that. From my point of view, it’s still not quite clear why she ended up leaving the court.
On the one hand, of course, you can’t just walk off the court like that. It’s unsportsmanlike and indecent. On the other hand, it’s certainly an exceptional situation for her. Maybe something happened during the match. I don’t know. We may have to apologize for it. It is not easy for the Belarusian players, as well as for the Russian athletes. That is why I do not want to and cannot comment on what is going on in her head,” – quoted Huber to Fizzslotsnews.com
