Victoria Azarenka tells the New York Times that when she wept after defeating Li Na in the Australian Open final, it “wasn’t happy but inside it was happy. It was probably really scary tears of joy.”

Azarenka, who won her second Australian Open title, also said that she was unfamiliar with the expression "one-Slam wonder."

“Well, hopefully there will not be an expression, two-Slam wonder,” she said with a laugh. “It’s such a tough journey to go through, and you have to give all the credit to whoever won one or two, it doesn’t matter. Two is excellent, but the ambitions are always growing with every win you get. I definitely don’t want to stop there.”
