Victoria Azarenka says she feels like a veteran on tour at 24 years old, but not in the category of the other three U.S. Open semifinalists, Serena Williams, Li Na and Flavia Pennetta, whom all over the age of 30. The world No. 2 also said she doesn't feel like she’s part of the new generation, either.

“Well, not like Serena, Li Na, and not like maybe Sloane Stephens,” she said. “Somewhere in between where I am exactly. I do feel sometimes I'm a little bit older than my age, but actually I just turned 24. It feels like I have been on tour forever coming ‑‑ playing full time on tour since I'm 16. So it's been a long journey, but I still consider myself as a young generation. Let's stay that way.”
