Classic video: Kittens transfixed by Azarenka's howling

by: Jonathan Scott November 14, 2012

That most famous of female tennis coos gets some play on YouTube this week, as a pair of smitten kittens—or are they appalled?—sit in a basket and watch Victoria Azarenka swipe noisy stroke after stroke in some match, at some point, somewhere on the globe. This instant-classic clip here:

The Spin's favorite bits: After one particularly ferocious Azarenka exhalation, one of the cat's claws spring out, and upon the conclusion of the point, the other's back and hindquarters arch in response to Vika or her foe—we're not quite sure—screaming in the wake of a presumed miss.

Poor felines. Looks like each will need a kitty chiropractic appointment soon.

[Kudos to Dlisted for the find, always a great web resource.]
