ISTANBUL, Turkey—Victoria Azarenka says that being around her boyfriend, the singer Redfoo, has helped her become more comfortable off court with the media, sponsors, and fans.

“It just shows that you always have to be really you, and it doesn’t matter where you are, and I feel it’s the best way to really just be more personal with anybody who you deal with, sponsors, press, other tennis players, just to be open and honest and they like you or they, may not like you that much. It’s up to people’s opinion, but if you’re staying consistent through what you do, I think it’s the best way.”

Azarenka makes a cameo as a stewardess appears in Redfoo’s new music video, “Let’s Get Ridiculous.”

“I didn’t want to be in that video, to be honest,” said the world No. 2, who leads the White Group at the WTA Championships. “It’s just trying to sneak me into every scene there was, and I was supposed to be a mermaid, but I said, you are out of your mind. I’m not swimming in the water. It’s cold. What are you talking about? And then he found another scene where I could just be a stewardess, and I never really served drinks, and the glass kept sliding and I was a little nervous. It was definitely fun to see how that world works and how long it takes to shoot that whole video. And swimming with sharks? Like it’s crazy. I mean, that’s why the video is Let’s Get Ridiculous. Because it is ridiculous.”
