Lukashenko wants Azarenka to win another Grand Slam


Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko wished Belarusian tennis player Victoria Azarenka to clinch a Grand Slam title soon.

-"Vika, don't even think to lose the next Grand Slam in Australia, God forbid. So, Vika, if you promise us to win, we are preparing for the visit to the Australian Open", the President admitted on the TV channel "Belarus 1".

Alexander Lukashenko also shared his opinion about Victoria Azarenka’s performance at the US Open:

" Azarenka recently lost at the US Open, although it was her tournament. She has never played so well. And she could have defeated Romanian Simona Halep in the quarterfinal match. I think, she failed to be strong emotionally. Why am I saying this? Soon, I will go to New York to attend the UN General Assembly summit. When it comes to Belarus, everyone says with admiration: “Oh, Domracheva, oh, Azarenka!” In that way, a dialogue at the highest level begins! That’s why, we allocate big sums of money for sports," said Lukashenko.
