Victoria Azarenka reveals an intriguing tale about her son Leo

After winning the match against Pegula at the Indian Wells 2021, Azarenka shared a moment with fans, which she believes made not just her day, but her week, and even her month. She disclosed that her 4-year-old son, Leo, watched one of her latest matches in a meditating pose just like her, and told his dad that he wants to be just like his mother.

“I’m sure actually he’s watching so, hi Leo,” began Azarenka. “He was actually the most adorable thing yesterday. He made my day, my week, I think even my month. His dad sent me a picture of Leo watching my match in a meditating pose and he said, ‘I’m gonna be just like mom, meditating.'”

Azarenka was looking really happy while narrating this fascinating incident. She seems really proud of her son and fans now expect him to become a fantastic tennis player, just like his mother.
