World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka says she can relate to Samantha Stosur, who admitted that she choked in her second-round loss to Zheng Jie at the Australian Open. The Aussie was up 5-2 in the third set before losing, 6-4, 1-6 7-5.

“For sure everybody felt that at some point in their career,” she said. “It’s sometimes that you think you know exactly what you do, but your body just kind of resembles your actions. You know, sometimes it’s just blurry. You don’t see anything. I’m sure everybody experienced that. I have in the past. It’s just a matter of how you deal with it. She’s been really honest about it. I’m sure it’s not easy for her to play here. … We don’t have a Grand Slam in Belarus, so I’m kind of lucky with that -- or not.”
