Former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka took to social media on Friday morning in Melbourne to tease the launch of "Think About It," a six-episode series she will host.

"It's a talk show and podcast series featuring a lot of intimate and honest conversations with some really inspiring guests," she said in a video announcement posted to her official platforms.


Azarenka has already been outspoken to start the new season, writing an impassioned and highly-lauded statement about the difficult circumstances under which many players currently find themselves ahead of the first major tournament of 2021.

The two-time Australian Open champion ended an interrupted 2020 season playing some of her best tennis since becoming a mother in 2016, winning the re-located Western & Southern Open title in Flushing Meadows before finishing runner-up at the US Open—her best Grand Slam result in seven years—the following week.

"Think About It" has been in the works for nine months, says Azarenka, who will release the full series in both audio and visual form on Tennis Channel and your favorite podcast platform on January 27.

"I wasn't planning on releasing it just yet, but being stuck in quarantine, it might be perfect timing. I'm very nervous about it, but also really excited for people to hear and see it."

"I hope you find it a little inspiring in these challenging times."
