WATCH: Azarenka edged into her first Australian Open semifinal since winning the title in 2013 last week.


It appears Victoria Azarenka got a first look at her avatar on Matchpoint – Tennis Championships—and the former world No. 1 isn’t pleased.

Tennis has little love from the video game space in the last decade since the long-running Topspin franchise petered out in 2011, creating a vacuum that game developers were slow to fill.

Enter Matchpoint – Tennis Championships, which was released last summer and included promo from the likes of Daniil Medvedev, Amanda Anisimova, and Garbiñe Muguruza.

Azarenka evidently fell behind with the development process, and was met with quite a shock Monday morning when a screenshot purported to be her digital likeness appeared on Twitter:

Ironically enough, Ruud does feature among the roster of players, but somehow looks less like himself than Azarenka’s character, which is listed as an “all court player.”

Given the two-time Australian Open champion’s January resurgence, which featured an impressive run to the semis in Melbourne, it’s unlikely Azarenka will be too bothered by how the game turned out, and followed up with a take on which most can agree:


Azarenka is back inside the world’s Top 20 after dropping as low as No. 37 last fall.
