Who's the GOAT?: Victoria Azarenka's response racked up points on the humor chart
Simona Halep, Maria Sakkari and others shared their opinions at the Omnium Banque Nationale.
Published Aug 13, 2021
When the Omnium Banque Nationale asked seven players from this year’s draw who they think the GOAT is, one of them took the question a little too literally.
The video, posted by the tournament’s official Twitter account, includes Simona Halep, Maria Sakkari, Leylah Fernandez, Garbine Muguruza, Aryna Sabalenka, Bianca Andreescu, and lastly, Victoria Azarenka. Halep and Sakkari both agreed that Serena Williams is the GOAT. Fernandez and Andreescu went with other athletes, choosing Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James, respectively.
When it was Azarenka’s turn, it was immediately visible on her face that she was cooking up a more…unique response. Never one to suppress her quirky personality, The world No. 15 dissolved into giggles as she gave her answer: “Milk.”
If it had been a word association game, she would’ve been spot on. Azarenka may not have entirely “understood the assignment,” but she certainly earned points for humor.
The Belarusian fell to Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals, and the world No. 3 is the only one of the seven remaining in the draw as we head into the final four in Montreal. Sabalenka is set to face Karolina Pliskova in Saturday’s semifinal, and aside from Fernandez, the rest of the women will be back in action next week at the Western and Southern Open.
